Philadelphia Phillies fans try to stay cool amid extreme heat

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Phillies fans gathered at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia on Sunday afternoon for the Phillies’ game against the Chicago Cubs.

Despite the scorching heat, fans still came out.

“Too hot, extremely hot,” said Malik Armstead of Old Greenwich, Connecticut.

Some people came to the stadium early to set up tailgates around the parking lots. A few people were able to find some shady spots to cool off.

“We actually have quite a few portable fans,” said Jennifer Rodammer of Elkton, Maryland.

The heat was unbearable for some from Florida.

“We decided to drive a thousand miles and here we are. As far as the heat goes, it’s hot,” said Patrick Sweeney of Palm Bay, Florida.

Some waited in long lines for the doors to open, while others stayed cool in the shade.

“Hats, drink lots of water, just try to stay in the shade as much as possible,” said Nicole Lastella of Alpharetta, Georgia.

The Phillies have set up fog stations around the stadium and sprinkler systems for the kids. The heat brings additional challenges for families with little ones.

“First and foremost, we need to make sure she’s in the shade,” said Ambler’s Tom Kegelman, who was carrying a baby.

Despite the heat, many dedicated fans said they wanted to come out to show their support for the Phillies.
