J-Roll To Light The Tree
Citizens Bank Park a quiet place?
Well, if you are looking for baseball games and sold out crowds, it is quiet.
But the offseason is still an active time.
The Majestic Clubhouse store is open for Phillies fans looking for holiday (or Halladay) gifts. Plenty to choose from.
This weekend, the store will be buzzing with the annual two-day Holiday Sale & Food Drive. Included is the lighting of the Christmas tree by the Third Base Gate on Saturday. Who will have the honor of turning on the lights? None other than Jimmy Rollins and Phanta Claus.
Popular Six-Pack ticket packages went on sale this week. Another great holiday gift.
You’ve probably never heard of Bram Reynolds and Carolyn White. They head Global Spectrum, the company that maintains Citizens Bank Park. At this time of the year, winterization of the park is underway. For example, all water in the Suites has been shut off. Same for the Terrace Level. Pressure washing the concession stands and ballpark is rounding third base to the finish line.
Through Special Events various parts of the ballpark are booked. The Diamond Club, Hall of Fame Club, Media Room and Executive Dining Room are available for functions.
Last month, 37 events were held in the park, the most ever for one month. You name it….engagement photo-ops, wedding receptions, meetings, Eagles tailgate parties, birthday parties, holiday parties, Bar Mitzvahs.
Ballpark tours continue during the offseason, Monday through Saturdays. The behind-the-scenes tours include the Phillies clubhouse which is decorated for the holiday season.
Before you know it, the Phillies and Astros will open the 2011 season at the park. Another sell out. Only 116 days until then, April 1, to be specific. No foolin’.
