    Phillies fans turned out at Liberty Place in Center City for a rally to wish the team well as they kick off their postseason.

    Craig Morgan says he’s been a Phillies fan since the 50’s. He says he has confidence in the team.

    Morgan: Well, after what we went through last year I think this year they have a good opportunity. They seem to be falling apart a little bit at the end of the season but I have faith they will come back.

    Tickets are also a little easier to come by this time around. Because the team has two afternoon games to start off the playoffs, some ticketholders are selling their seats because of work and school conflicts, and the additional supply is driving down the price at ticket websites.
