PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Red October continues in South Philadelphia as the Phillies advance to NLCS Saturday and fans couldn’t be more excited.
“I’m thrilled baby! We’re talking about the Fightins! The Fightins!” shouted a fan after Saturday’s game.
The Phillies are returning to the NLCS for the first time since 2010, which means more home playoff baseball in South Philadelphia for fans.
“The Phillies are looking really good. There’s a chance we could go all the way,” said Fairmount’s Jerome Baaks.
“I had so much fun playing this game. It’s so electrifying to see the fans in the stadium showing their support again,” said John Fagley of South Philadelphia.
Fans lined up at the stadium on Sunday morning to receive their Championship Series kit. They hope this won’t be their last visit to the Pro Shop.
“They’re going to the World Series,” said Bill Godfrey of Pittman, New Jersey. “You struck in time.”
The bats buzzed. From Rhys Hoskins’ three run shot and Bat Spike on Friday night to JT Realmuto’s inside-the-park home run on Saturday, they give a Team of Destiny vibes.
“I snagged NLCS shirts. I was texting with my brother who lives in San Diego. They’re going under,” said Aldan’s Diana Boyle.
The Phillies will travel west for games one and two on Tuesday and Wednesday. We see playing cards for under $200 in San Diego. Airline tickets, on the other hand, cost around $1,000.
“I love the Phils. Phils will be in the World Series, brings back memories of 2008. Good year, good year. Fightins will do it, baby. Said!” said Joe Dolan of South Philadelphia.
If you want to be a part of the crowd that fills the stadium next weekend, tickets start at around $350. Despite the price, you can guarantee that the ballpark will be full.
