Citizens Bank Park is 10 years old















The Phillies will start their 11th season at Citizens Bank Park as the stadium is celebrating it's first ten years of use that ended at the end of the 2013 season. 2004 - 2014 - the Phillies stadium has seen a lot of fans too.

It's hard to believe that the beloved Veteran's Stadium, a baseball shrine that a lot of people grew up with has been gone out of our lives for as many years as the new stadium has been open.

The memories of standing on the Vet's massive walkways that led to the entrances while you looked over at the builders assembling the new stadium that would be designed as State Of The Art.

Yes, it's been a few years since the Phillies have moved into the 'new' stadium, it's not so new anymore.


Trivia:  What player currently on the Phillies also played at the Vet?


Answer:  Jimmy Rollins
