    Especially in old YS, you would always see the fans heads jerk in a certain direction when a ball was going out, and yea I get definitely get that sense at CPB.
    Unfortunately, NYS looks terrible on TV, especially those side shots. Too much metal, and the moat around the Legend's Seats is especially an eyesore on TV. The coolest shot I have ever seen, and still gives me goosebumps is the one of Ruth smacking a homer in the 20's.

    Wait until 0:30 in. That clip is incredible.

    Citi is very similar to the Philly ballpark, and there is a lot to like about CBP.


    High, wide field concourse, more so than Citi, and as I have mentioned over and over, endless draft beer stations.




    The Ashburn Alley Rooftop area is a great place to hang, but often just for groups, and pretty narrow as compared to Citi's Pepsi Porch.




    View down from the rooftop area. Of course, great bullpen-to-fan placement, Phillie HOF etc area right there as well, and in the foreground, those killer Crab Fries.

    I like the warm color of the field concourses.

    I wish I could look at some pics of this stadium in its first year and now to see how it has evolved into itself.

    Nah but in all seriousness CBP is a nice ballpark.

    Here's my pictures from the 2nd exhibition game they played when the park first opened in '04. Nothing really major has changed besides moving the LF wall back, adding some LED boards, and various concession upgrades, most of which the regular person would never notice.

    What's interesting too is that the ballpark was not completely finished during this game. None of the pavers that are on Ashburn Alley now were finished at that point and there were orange cones and barriers everywhere! Anyways, enjoy!

    Nice shots... I'm glad that Citizens Bank changed fonts/logo in their wordmark. It looks so much better now, plus it makes a picture easier to put a date on.

    Kudos to the Phillies for calling today's game nice and early. I was still on the Belt Parkway when I heard the game was called.

    here are my photos from yesterday's mets vs phillies game

    CBP is still in my top 5 favorite ballparks.
    they bump the parking price to $15
    the ushers are very friendly
    since winning a title phillies fans are acting like what mets fans use to in 2007
    very arrogant but i will give them a pass
    Even though my mets lost hearing the late harry kalas singing high hopes was just amazing.
    its a great rivarly and i hope it continues

    one of my favorite things about CBP is the maroon colored steel it gives it a very unique look

    2008 N.L. Playoffs

    I feel kind of bad for Phillies fans that the Phillies clinched the National League pennant last year at aging Dodger Stadium, instead of the great, intense atmosphere at home. The clinching game went the full 9 innings so most Dodger patrons were already gone by then.

    Don't bring the Phillies fans into your convoluted argument, i'm sure they would speak for themselves if they bitterly hated Dodger Stadium like you do. All of the Phillies fans I talked to during the NLCS loved the Stadium and maybe if you visited it would change your mind.

    It's just bad for baseball when during a series clinching game, the game is played in front of a laid-back, apathetic crowd that could care less about who won or lost.

    You weren't there you probably have never been there so you have no idea how the crowd is. What did you expect Dodger fans to be going crazy for the Phillies really?!

    I was in Philadelphia several weeks ago and while I didn't have a chance to attend a game at CBP, I did get some shots from around the exterior of the ballpark. I especially liked the statues around the park and the Robin Roberts one in particular.

    Robin Roberts:

    Wow that robin roberts statue is so cool!
    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.
