Take a Walk Down the Alley
The history of the Phillies may not be glorious – just one World Series championship and a whole lot of heartache, any Philadelphia fan will tell you – but there sure is a lot of it. In fact, the Phils like to brag that they’re the oldest, continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional sports.
A lot of that history is reflected at Citizens Bank Park. Ashburn Alley, named after Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn, has granite markers featuring Phillies All-Stars, an illustrated history of Philadelphia baseball and a Wall of Fame with bronze plaques of Phillies’ greats. There are also four 10-foot bronze statues of Phillies’ Hall of Famers Robin Roberts, Steve Carlton, Mike Schmidt and Ashburn around the park, as well as a statue of Connie Mack.
Ashburn Alley, located beyond the outfield, is popular with fans for the historical exhibits as well as the many food options. Citizen’s Bank Park gets rave reviews for its eats, and many of the offerings are from local restaurants. There are Tony Luke’s cheesesteaks, Chickie’s and Pete’s crab fries (french fries with Old Bay seasoning and cheese sauce) and the locally famous Schmitter sandwich. Then there’s Bull’s BBQ, a picnic area in Ashburn Alley offering barbequed pork, beef, turkey and ribs. Greg ‘The Bull’ Luzinski, a Phillies slugger from the 1970s, is often on hand.
Other unmistakable signs that you’re in Philadelphia are the 50-foot tall replica of the Liberty Bell in right-center field (it lights up, swings back and forth and rings for a Phillies home run or victory) and the Phanatic. The fury, fluffy green monster has been around for more than 30 years, and whatever your opinion of mascots, is a part of the scene at Citizens Bank.
