Take them over to The Yard, located in the right field concourse where kids get to play wiffle ball, measure their pitching velocity, climb a rock wall, and test their accuracy with the Phanatic’s hot dog launcher. Of course, a great trip to the ballpark isn’t complete without ice cream and extra jimmies served in a Phillies batting helmet!

Purchase your discounted tickets today (in a great section might we add) and receive a $12 meal voucher per ticket that can be used at any food stand in the park. Five dollars from each ticket sold will be donated to fund music therapy program initiatives through the Kids-N-Hope Foundation.
