Citizens Bank Park is a 43,647-seat baseball-only stadium in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that opened on April 3, 2004 and hosted its first regular season baseball game on April 12 of that same year, as the tenants of the facility, the Philadelphia Phillies lost to the Cincinnati Reds, 4-1. The ballpark was built to replace the now-demolished Veterans Stadium (a football/baseball multipurpose facility), and features natural grass and dirt playing field and boasts many Philadelphia style food stands, including several which serve cheesesteaks, hoagies, and other regional specialties. Behind center field is Ashburn Alley, named after Phillies great center fielder and Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn, a walkway featuring restaurants and memorabilia from Phillies history, along with a restaurant/bar and grille called "Harry The K's" named after Hall of Fame broadcaster Harry Kalas. This area opens two-and-a-half hours before the scheduled first pitch, much like Eutaw Street at Oriole Park at Camden Yards via the Left Field Gate, with two exceptions: Opening Day, when all gates open three hours before the scheduled first pitch and on the team's annual Photo Day, when all gates open two-and-a-half hours before the scheduled first pitch to allow fans with cameras onto the warning track to take pictures (or videos) of the team's players.

History

In 1998, the Phillies and the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League joined their western Pennsylvania counterparts, the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Pittsburgh Steelers in making requests to replace both Veterans Stadium and Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh with separate stadiums, much of which came after a railing collapsed at The Vet during the Army-Navy Game, injuring eight cadets. The Pirates had also made strong threats in 1997 about moving from Pittsburgh, forcing the issue at the state level. The state legislature approved funding for the four proposed stadiums. While Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh approved the pacts rather swiftly, due to plans already being in place at the time of legislative approval, bickering in Philadelphia's political arena and debate carried on as Pittsburgh opened their stadiums (PNC Park for the Pirates and Heinz Field for the Steelers) in 2001. The Eagles agreed to a site slightly southeast of Veterans Stadium, which would become Lincoln Financial Field. The "Linc" was built on the site of an old food warehouse and celebrated its grand opening in August 2003.

The Phillies originally wanted a downtown ballpark much like those in Baltimore, Denver, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Detroit or San Francisco. Various locations were proposed, initially at Broad and Spring Garden streets, Spring Garden and Delaware Avenue and next to 30th Street Station, where the main post office is located. The team and City announced that the site would be at 13th and Vine streets, just north of Interstate 676, an easy walk from downtown and a great view of the skyline. There was considerable support for a downtown ball park from business and labor and the city at large, but residents of the city's Chinatown section formed protests. Despite that the ball park would not technically be located in Chinatown, the City and team eventually settled on building at the south Philadelphia sports complex, on the site of an old food warehouse much like Lincoln Financial Field. In the years that have followed, residents, fans and even owner Bill Giles have expressed regret that the new ball park is not located in Center City.

The unveiling of the park and ground breaking ceremonies were on June 28, 2001. Following the game that evening, the location of the left-field foul pole was unveiled at the outset of the team's annual 4th of July fireworks display. The next milestone came on June 17, 2003 when Citizens Bank agreed with the team to a 25-year, US$95 million deal for naming rights and advertising on telecasts, radio broadcasts, publications and inside the facility. The ballpark was officially topped off on August 12 that same year, and it was cleared to open the following April thus becoming the fourth and final venue in the city's massive "Sports Complex" in South Philadelphia, joining the similarly corporate-named Wachovia Spectrum (1967), the Wachovia Center (1996), and Lincoln Financial Field (2003). is the 179th day of the year (180th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Controversies and Memorable Moments

There have been controversies regarding the field dimensions and fence distances at Citizens Bank Park since it opened in 2004. Pitchers and media members have asserted that the ballpark, which promised to be fair to both hitters and pitchers, was in fact a "bandbox" (baseball slang for a small field that allows a disproportionate number of home runs.) A study originally showed that the park's projected wind patterns would provide an advantage to pitchers in night games and hitters in day games.[citation needed] But in 2004, the park yielded a total of 228 home runs, the most in the National League, and only U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago served up more homers with 272 that year. Compounding matters, the Phillies originally and mistakenly placed a 369-foot distance marker in left center field 25 feet closer than it should have been.[citation needed] For other uses, see National League (disambiguation). ... U.S. Cellular Field a. ... Nickname: Motto: Urbs in Horto (Latin: City in a Garden), I Will Location in the Chicago metro area and Illinois Coordinates: , Country State Counties Cook, DuPage Settled 1770s Incorporated March 4, 1837 Government  - Mayor Richard M. Daley (D) Area  - City 234. ...


After the 2005 season where 17 fewer home runs were hit in the park than in 2004, the fences in left and left-center were moved back five feet and raised 2.5 feet (0.76 meters). The change resulted in the removal of 192 seats in left field, reducing the park's seating capacity from its original 43,500 seats. Since then, seats have been added in other sections, bringing the capacity to its current 43,647. Citizens Bank Park remains among the most hitter-friendly parks in the major leagues [1], but some of its reputation is likely due to the fact that the Phillies have been among the National League's top hitting teams since the park opened, even if only statistics in road games are taken into account. [2]


Two of the park's longest home runs have had disputes regarding their distance. On April 23, 2006, Ryan Howard was thought to have become the first player to hit a home run into Ashburn Alley at Citizens Bank Park. The ball actually landed at the Phillies Wall of Fame just before the alley itself. The blast traveled a reported 496 feet off Sergio Mitre of the Florida Marlins, and a stadium plaque commemorating Howard's 58 home runs that year noted that the ball traveled 502 feet; however, an independent estimate claims the length was considerably shorter, around 442 feet.[3] Another milestone home run of disputable length was also hit by Howard, the 100th of his career, and came off Cincinnati Reds pitcher Aaron Harang on June 27th, 2007. The ball cleared the brick wall backdrop in center field and was originally reported at 505 feet, but other estimates put it at only 455 feet.[4] is the 113th day of the year (114th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On June 20, 2006, Howard, facing Mike Mussina of the New York Yankees, hit a home run that traveled an estimated 437 feet.[5] With that blast, Howard became the first person to reach the third deck at the ballpark. To commemorate the event the Phillies painted a white "H", much as the Vet had "Stargell's Star", at the location. The painted "H" is located at Section 304, Row 1, Seat 8. Earlier that season, on May 7, Barry Bonds of the San Francisco Giants hit the McDonald's advertising sign on the façade of the third level for the 713th home run in his career. is the 171st day of the year (172nd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On April 23, 2007, Phils' second baseman Chase Utley hit a home run over the second wall and fully into the Memory Lane/Phillies Wall of Fame area of Ashburn Alley, a 462-foot blast against Dave Borkowski of the Houston Astros.[6] Later that season, the first visiting player to reach the Alley by way of the home run was St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols off pitcher J.C.

On May 11, 2006, in a rain-shortened game against the New York Mets, Phillies center fielder Aaron Rowand made a game-saving, over-the-shoulder catch of a fly ball but then ran full speed into the Phillies bullpen fence, breaking his nose in the process. Before the season, Rowand, upon seeing the center field fence after his acquisition from the Chicago White Sox, recommended to the Phillies to place extra padding on the bullpen fence, padding that arrived the day before his injury and that was slated for installation on the team's next road trip.

Ballpark attractions

Ashburn Alley

The main feature of the ballpark is "Ashburn Alley", running the length of the outfield and anchored by a statue of legendary Phillies player and broadcaster Richie Ashburn in center field, the position he played from 1948 to 1960 as a member of the fabled "Whiz Kids" that won the National League championship in 1950. Included in the Alley are: For other uses, see National League (disambiguation). ...
