Or learn how you should dress for today’s Philly game at Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia. Citizens Bank Park replaced Veterans Stadium in 2004, which had been the Phillies' home since 1971. The world-class $336 million baseball-only open-air park has a natural grass field, great views for the fans, and numerous fan-friendly features. It is located in Philadelphia's South Side stadium complex next to the homes of the Eagles, Sixers and Flyers. |
With short distances to both corners (329/330 feet left and right corners) it is a home run haven for both left/right-handed hitters. Although Citizen's Bank Ballpark gives up a ton of home runs (perhaps due to the Phillies’ stacked lineup), ESPN only ranks the park #16 as a hitter’s ballpark. Consistent with its ESPN Ranking, Citizen's Bank Ballpark gave up a total of 8.56 runs per game for both teams in 2010 – the 17th most runs out of 30 teams. Coors Field gave up the most runs per game at 10.59.
