Her first fan jersey was a onesie, and she’s been playing catch with her oversized mitt since she started walking. Now you’re ready to take your little slugger out to the ball game, take her out with the crowds. Besides the peanuts and Cracker Jacks, stadiums have tons to offer their littlest fans. From Ferris wheels and mini golf, to coaching clinics and hands-on skills zones, we’ve loaded the bases with major league stadiums that’ve hit a grand slam when it comes to family perks. Flip through to see if your home team made the list!
Citizen’s Bank Park – Philadelphia, Pa
There are fans… and then there are Phans. The kid-friendly perks at Citizen’s Bank Park are one reason so many Phamilies are Phillies Phans. The go-to spot for the tot lot has to be the Phanatic Phun Zone (there’s a junior counterpart, too!). Both are soft play spaces where kidlets can play games, slide, climb, and explore until they can’t anymore. Little leaguers will also love the Citizens Bank Games of Baseball—grab a Phan Prize Card in Ashburn Alley first, and then head over to run the bases and test their knowledge with baseball trivia. What’s the final phantastic pheature of this park? The Phanatic Kid’s Corner where vendors serve up mini hot dogs, pretzels and drinks for the Phillies’ littlest Phans.
All Star Play: Two hours before the game, Ashburn Alley opens so fans can watch batting practice, and practice their best cheers. It’s something every Phanatic should do at least once, especially when they’re little!
