Phillies: It was easy to take baseball for granted, wrongly

Of all the professional sports, baseball was the easiest to take things for granted.

Its usual 162-game schedule allows for more than 80 Phillies home games to be played at Citizens Bank Park each season.

Scattered throughout are popular annual events, such as the Phillies Phestival benefiting Lou Gehrig‘s Disease, Alumni Weekend and the Wall of Fame Induction Ceremony, or even Dollar Dog Nights.
