Expensive? Yes. But postseason baseball tickets at Citizens Bank Park are worth every single penny you pay for them.
The lights are brightest at the ballpark in Red October. The place is electric, on fire, even. It’s an indescribable buzz that you only feel during a big series at CBP. If you’ve experienced it, you know what I’m talking about. The chill in the air, the fact that concessions stands are selling hot chocolate, and going home and not being able to sleep because of how loud your ears are ringing. The costumes, the witty signs, the Philly-fan inside jokes, and the deafening roar of the crowd.
Am I painting a good enough picture?
There are so many components that make a Red October game as magical as it is. Citizens Bank Park comes alive. The city of Philadelphia unites for one common purpose. We troll other teams, we support the hell out of our own, and we hope to everything that is holy for a win.
The Philadelphia Phillies organization sees it. The media sees it. We all see it. Postseason at the bank is pure magic. A sports unicorn, if you will. So yes, you look at tickets, see those triple-digit numbers, and have a tough decision to make. When you go, though, you realize that the scene before you is worth every dollar. Every measly penny.
