Rain, snow, sleet or shine: #PhanaticRoadTrip to Spring Training on Wednesday


WHAT:             Be on the lookout: the first ever #PhanaticRoadTrip to Spring Training starts Wednesday.

  • The Phillies' mascot will pack up his office at Citizens Bank Park and load his essential personal items into his van, before waving adieu to his fellow Phillies front office employees and embarking on a 1,058 mile trek to Bright House Field in Clearwater, Fla.
  • Fans should be on the lookout throughout 95 South, as the Phanatic is planning to make some stops along the way. Fans can follow his adventures via Twitter on @Phillies with #PhanaticRoadTrip. The "Phanatic" will also be posting images to the Phillies' Facebook, Instagram, and Vine accounts.
  • The Phanatic hopes to arrive at Bright House Field on Saturday, February 22, where, for the first time, he will stay in Clearwater, Fla. for the entire duration of Spring Training and perform at ALL Phillies home games.

The Phanatic will be back in Philadelphia in time for the Phillies On-Deck Series games on March 28 and 29 versus the Pittsburgh Pirates, and of course for the Modell's Sporting Goods Home Opener on April 7 versus the Milwaukee Brewers.

WHEN:             9:30 a.m., Wednesday, February 19, 2014
