Major League Baseball Park # 2
Date: May 29, 2009
Park: Citizens Bank Park
Teams: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies
We continued on our park tour while we were in PA visiting my Aunt Sue and Papi Jack. Our friend Greg joined us for this trip. We weren't sure if the weather was going to hold out for us or not since it had been pouring almost the entire hour from my Aunt's house to Philly.
We had great seats behind just to the left of home plate and just as the first pitch was about to happen, the skies cleared and we were good to go (we did buy a sexy Phillies poncho though...just in case!) The boys were way more interested in getting some good Philly cheesesteaks in the food court then they were in watching the game. While they were off searching for food I hung back and actually watched the game...what a concept:-)

I'm now writing this almost a year and a half after the game so I don't remember too many details. It was a beautiful night, the sky turned a crazy shade of red after the storm passed by. It was a good game and I didn't get sucked into buying a blue and maroon Phillies shirt (although I really wanted one). I really liked that the food court was in center field and you didn't miss any of the game while waiting in line for food/drinks. Parking was also a plus...meaning, I think we paid 5 bucks! Win!
