In Game

Phillies fans haven’t seen the same success recently that they were granted in the 2000’s, but that doesn’t stop them from flocking to Citizens Bank Park.  The Philly fans are a very wild and loyal bunch who take sports very seriously in the city of brotherly love, which is very apparent at Phillies games. They cheer loudly when they do well, and they’ll also boo the hell out of them when they make mistakes; remember that this is a city that booed Santa Claus in the 60’s.  

Over the years, Phillies fans haven’t had the best reputation for being friendly to opposing teams or their fan base; their passion, extreme loyalty and die-hard attitude knows no bounds. The unmatched devotion to their team and city makes the atmosphere inside Citizens Bank Park incomparable to any other stadium.

If you’re looking for a premium seat for the game, look to the Diamond and Hall of Fame clubs. Both clubs are air conditioned, and the diamond club offers a variety of different shops and exclusive foods outside of the usual ballpark menu.  The Hall of Fame Club features artifacts and memorabilia from Phillies teams as far back as the turn of the century.

Fight Songs

  1. High Hopes

    This Frank Sinatra hit is played after Philadelphia victories

    Next time you’re found, with your chin on the ground
    There a lot to be learned, so look around

    Just what makes that little old ant
    Think he’ll move that rubber tree plant
    Anyone knows an ant, can’t
    Move a rubber tree plant

    But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes
    He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

    So any time you’re gettin’ low
    ‘stead of lettin’ go
    Just remember that ant
    Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

    When troubles call, and your back’s to the wall
    There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

    Once there was a silly old ram
    Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
    No one could make that ram, scram
    He kept buttin’ that dam

    ’cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
    He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

    So any time you’re feelin’ bad
    ‘stead of feelin’ sad
    Just remember that ram
    Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

    All problems just a toy balloon
    They’ll be bursted soon
    They’re just bound to go pop
    Oops there goes another problem kerplop
