The following appears on their webpage…

“Are you sick and tired of stupid Mets fans taking over Citizen’s Bank Park?  Well its time to return the favor!  On Saturday September 6th Philadelphia will be taking over Shea Stadium. Right now we are in the process of talking to sales reps at Shea Stadium to get group tickets available.  As soon as they are available we will post a log-in id and password so you can order your tickets!  This game will be a FOX SATURDAY BASEBALL GAME which means its on NATIONAL TV!!!!  I want as many Phillies fans there as humanly possible!  Lets send Shea Stadium out with a bang! F@#K THE METS!!!!!!”

…from what i can gather, more than 500 Phillies fans say they will try to attend the game…ugh

For what it’s worth, the Mets travel to Philadelphia on Saturday, April 19 and Sunday, April 20, both of which are Nationally televised games.

Single-game tickets for Citizen’s Bank Park go on sale tomorrow, Thurs., Feb. 21, and can be purchased at Phillies.com.
