Hammond Stadium

Phillies Spring Training: Hammond Stadium 2013

Growing up in a house full of girls, I never would have imagined myself going to sporting events on vacation, but, this is the second vacation in a row that my family has gone to a baseball game, and both experiences were wonderful. As the mom to two boys who love sports, I've learned to enjoy these experiences as I watch their eyes light up.

Last year, we went to a game in Brewster Massachusets and this year we saw the Phillies play at Hammond Stadium in Florida. Everyone in my family loves the Phillies and over the years we've been to a bunch of games at Citizen's Bank Park. It's a modern stadium and we've seen some great games there, but having a chance to see the Phillies play at a much smaller venue surrounded by palm trees was such a treat.
