mouth-watering emphasis on local Philly flavor. Fear
not when hunger calls—the walk-around, open-air
concourses o;er continuous, uninterrupted views of
the field, so you’ll never have to miss a pitch.

its best, is a family a;air. And they know that if the
youngest members of your team aren’t enjoying themselves, you won’t be able to enjoy the game. That’s
where the Phanatic Phun Zone comes in, a giant, soft
play area filled with games, climbing and exploration.
There’s also the Citizens Bank Games of Baseball,
featuring the attractions Phan Trivia Challenge, Run
the Bases and Ring ’Em Up—all in Ashburn Alley.
