I really enjoyed that stadium, thought it had a lot of character to it. Plus I got to see Izzy Alcantara. I was just hoping he would kick a catcher for my pleasure.

That dude was a pile though. He was their LF and during innings where he wouldnt bat unless they went 7 hitters into the inning, he would just sit in the bullpen on the foul line until they were supposed to go back onto the field.


Is that an independent League?


I am pretty sure. I was in Indy for a week and saw the Norfolk Tides and Toledo Mud Hens come through.

It's the Pirates' AAA affiliate.

Correct, however, when I was there 2-3 years ago it was the Brewers.

So it couldn't have been an independent league.

You are right I read his question as asking if it was International League.

Hope that I don't miss any but:

Yankee Stadium
Shea Stadium
Fenway Park
Camden Yards
Veteran's Stadium
PNC Park

I think that's it.

Any Philly fans or non that have been to Citizens Bank? It's probably nice since it's new, but some extra opinions and tips would be great. My cousin's went a few times and he said it's really something to take a driving trip for. He moved out to Philly from NY a couple of years ago and lived there for a year or two, then come back 'cause he hated Pennsylvania, but he got to go to a few pro games for the Phillies, Sixers, and Eagles vs. Giants.

I've been to CBP twice. It's a nice park. I don't like it much, but my friends all say that they like it a lot. There's all kinds of extra junk there. Also, the place is crazy expensive. Prices are expenisve. Food/drink is ridiculous (just like it is everywhere else), tickets are crazy expensive, and the parking is even more awful (both in terms of pricing and convenience). I park in a residential neighborhood maybe a mile or two north (maybe northwest) of the stadium. It's free and the amount of time it takes to get out of the stadium afterwards is about equal. After the game, there are a number of good places to hang out. Oh, and don't try for any autographs. The Phillies players 90% won't give you any (I was sitting one row behind the Phillies dugout. I asked for autographs both before and after the game. I ended up getting ZERO.)

OK, done ranting :-/ .
