The Phillies were busy in Clearwater this week getting the band back together for the first official full squad workout on Tuesday as well as the ever-popular Photo Day and other happenings in the sunshine.
Meanwhile, back in Philly, the folks in the front office were busy too. Not only are preparations for the season in full swing, but also plans for fan events and, more importantly, fan input are very active.
The title of the chart-topping album of songstress, and Pennsylvania native, Taylor Swift, yes. But also a directive to all Phillies fans to have their voice be heard.
Not since the presidential election has a vote of such magnitude been tasked to Americans, particularly those with a love for the Phillies. We’re asking for your help in ranking your favorite “Top 10 Moments” at Citizens Bank Park by heading to Phillies.com/TopMoments.
Was it the last out of the World Series in 2008? Doc’s postseason no-hitter? Jim Thome’s 400th career homerun? We know, tough to choose…but you’re up for the challenge, right?
The “Top 10 Moments” online ballot is just one part of our plans to celebrate the past 10 seasons of baseball at Citizens Bank Park and we’re excited to give fans the chance to relive all of the wonderful memories over the decade through exclusive video available only on Phillies.com.
Voting will close on Friday, March 14, with the winning moments announced prior to Opening Day and acknowledged throughout this coming season. So get busy and vote right now!
Speaking of CBP…
- The Phillies moved into Citizens Bank Park in 2004 after 33 years at Veterans Stadium.
- The world-class ballpark – rated one of the best in the country – opened on April 3, 2004, with an exhibition game against the Cleveland Indians.
- Since the ballpark opened, the Phillies have captured a World Series championship, two National League pennants, and five consecutive NL East titles…and we’re not done yet.

Tweet of the Week
We couldn’t pass this one by. Yes, it’s from the @Phillies account but it was a possum (or opossum, depending on who you talk to) that may have caused a bit of a stir during workouts on Wednesday.
