While my brother was here visiting, we decided to do the tour of the Phillies Ballpark before dropping him off at the airport. I really enjoyed the tour, it was something nice to do as a family. We were concerned about the walking because my mother was with us, but the gentleman who ran our tour, took his time so as not to make my mother have to walk too fast. He was a wonderful tour guide, very informative and personable. After a 10-minute film about old Veterans Stadium and the construction of the new park, we proceeded on our tour. He took us into areas such as one of the boxes, Ashburn Alley, the dugout, bullpens, batting cages, Diamond Club which has a view above the batting cages, media room, and partially into the locker rooms. He said that during the off-season, they will take you into the locker rooms, sauna, and workout area. My little nephew even got a free Phillies hat. It was a neat tour and I would recommend it to anyone, whether they are a baseball fan or not. It started at 10am and said that it lasts approximately 90 minutes, but our tour took almost 2 hours since our tour guide didn't rush us through anything.
