We already know Philadelphia sports fans travel well, and Game 3 of the NLCS in Phoenix was no exception.
Phillies red could be seen all over Chase Field ahead of the first pitch Thursday evening against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
“Just as cheap to come out here, roundtrip airline, two nights at a hotel, and two tickets for the price of a 200 level at Citizen Bank Park — winner,” said Jim Duffy of Doylestown.
Things you can climb in Phoenix, Arizona, part 2: CHASE FIELD EDITION#Phillies fans, if you’re making the trip to the #NLCS to see the Fightins and the D-backs, here’s a tour of the surrounding climbable structures!#RedOctober #RingTheBell pic.twitter.com/zxGPMLueZv— Grace Del Pizzo (@GraceDelPizzo) October 18, 2023
And we also found a familiar face. Grace Del Pizzo is from Marple, Delaware County, but goes to college in Phoenix.
She knows a few things about Philadelphia sports fans and their tendency to climb things when their team does well.
She’s been acting as kind of a tour guide, of sorts, for fans coming into town. She did the same thing when the Eagles went to the Super Bowl.
“If you look behind me, this whole thing is very climbable, like it’s almost built for that. I don’t know why they would do that. I mean, D-Backs fans don’t really climb a lot,” Del Pizzo tells Action News.
She adds that this is obviously all a joke.
But if the Phillies are able to pull off a win on the road, there will be a party in Phoenix for sure.
