I Went to Every Phillies Game in April and It Was Great

Citizens Bank Park - April 2016

When the Phillies return home tonight after a 10-game road trip, they’ll be playing their first home games since they swept Cleveland in a series that stretched from April into May. They’ll have rookie Tommy Joseph, who was promoted today, in the lineup for the first time. And it will be the first time this season I won’t be there.

This April, the Phillies were one of a few teams to offer a new gimmick: The Spring Pass. For just $50, you could get tickets to every April game besides Opening Day. I scored an Opening Day ticket on StubHub for $33, so that meant I paid about $6.38 a game to attend every Phillies game in April in the stands.

Here’s how the Spring Pass worked: For every game, you got a standing-room only ticket to gain access to the park. About an hour before the game, you click an option in the app to “claim” seats. Where these are depend on how crowded the game is. For some cold weeknight games in early April, I sat in the lower levels in the outfield.

If you missed the Boss on The River Tour when it came to the Wells Fargo Center back in February, you have a second shot at scoring tickets.

This morning, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band announced a September 7th show at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, one of eight new stops. The tour, which started in January, celebrates the 35th anniversary of the 1980 album The River (think “The Ties That Bind” and “Hungry Heart”). At the Philadelphia show, the band will play a selection of River songs sprinkled with a few Springsteen classics.

So far, the tour’s shows have been running over three hours. Clips have been magical; the Boss has as much energy as ever.  Read more »

Paul McCartney to Play Citizens Bank Park This Summer

Last night at the Phillies game, the team kept playing Paul McCartney songs. “Back in the USSR,” “Band on the Run”, “Day Tripper”, “Drive My Car.” And that was just in the first two innings. We had to search Twitter to make sure Paul McCartney hadn’t died and this was a tribute.

Fortunately, Sir Paul McCartney is still alive. But the playlist at the game last night was intentional: Today, the Phillies and McCartney announced he will play Citizens Bank Park on July 12th. Read more »
