Listen up Phillies fans because we are planning at least three awesome road trips this year to see the Phils play.
Phillies Spring Training Trip
First up is the annual pilgrimage to Clearwater. Phillies Nation and friends will be down this year over St. Patrick’s Day weekend (March 14th-18th). During this stretch we will be partying inside and out of Bright House Networks Field for two games: Saturday, the 15th versus Minnesota and Monday the 17th versus Cleveland. If you’ve never been to Spring Training (or can’t stay away), this is the weekend to go. It’s a wonderful mixture of Spring Training, Spring Break, St. Patty’s Day, and March Madness all in comfortable 85-degree weather.
Phillies in Denver
The next event follows soon after Opening Day and will take place at the home of a new Phillies rival, Denver. We’ll be flying out to Colorado to see the Phils take on the Rockies on April 21st and 22nd – the only games the Phillies will play at Coors Field this year. It’s a bit of a hike from the East Coast but it’s certainly worth getting a peak at one of the stadiums Citizen’s Bank Park was modeled after. Plus, we all hate the Rockies for how they manhandled the Phils last October.
Bus Trip to DC
Finally, due to the success of our last trip to DC (pictures) as well as the completion of the new Nationals Park, we will be loading up the bus and heading down to our nation’s capital once again. This season the Phillies play all weekday games when visiting the Nationals, fortunately one of them is on Monday, September 1st, also known as Labor Day. So it’s hard to imagine a better way to spend the day off work than at a 3:05 game in the new DC ballpark. I’ve been monitoring its progress down along the soon-to-be-gentrified Anacostia Waterfront and it’s looking good – a DC favorite, Ben’s Chili Bowl, as been added to the ballpark concessions. So, save the date now and more details will follow.
