Sports Illustrated's Florida Sportstown
Clearwater is proud to have been selected Sports Illustrated's Florida Sportstown in 2004. The selection, made by both Sports Illustrated and the National Recreation and Park Association, was based upon a variety of criteria, among which were the community's commitment to parks and recreation resources and the scope of programming. Each year the city hosts hundreds of swimming, basketball, baseball and softball competitions, among others, bringing athletes to the area to compete but also to enjoy all Clearwater has to offer.  

On the way to the game
Grab one or six of Pete & Shorty's famous slider burgers at the original location started up by the same guys who brought you the Hooters chain. They sell them at the park, but it's better to go to the source (2820 Gulf to Bay Blvd., Clearwater).
Jeremy Sandler, National Post

Save Money And Enjoy The Tiki Bar
Save money by buying a lawn seat, get in early and stake out one of the bar stools in the Tiki Bar in left field. First-come, first-serve, sweet view of the game.
Joe Connor, Author of A Fanís Guide To The Ultimate Spring Training Experience, www.modernerabaseball.com 

Beers lovers rejoice!
The third base concourse's Beers of the World sells over 40 types of beer, including Philly fav Yuengling. For fans who prefer spirits, the popular Frenchy's Tiki Pavilion in left field is a full service bar that also features five tiers of barstool seating directly behind the outfield fence. Seats (250 total) are first-come, first-serve. And it wouldn't be a Phillies game without Philadelphia's favorite sandwich - the cheesesteak. They are available at the concession stand behind home plate.

The Best Way To Get Phillie?s Autograph
Generally, players are willing to sign during spring training. The best time to get them is before the game. After the game the starters will go quickly down the tunnel and the rookies will stay on the field to run. Security doesnít usually seem to tight, so 30 to 45 minutes before the game, just stroll right down to the seats behind the dugout.

Lenny?s Restaurant
If youíre in Clearwater, you must go to Lennyís Restaurant. Lennyís is a favorite of all the players, broadcasters, and writers. It caters to all the players and itís not uncommon to head in after a game and find Comcast SportsNet doing a piece, or a group of Phils huddled around a table. Lennyís offers great Philly/South Jersey style food at very good prices, served by a friendly staff in a place with personality. They also cater breakfast for the players most days.

Parking Help
The closer you park to Bright House Networks Field, the more difficult it gets to find a place and the more expensive it gets. There's a park a mile or so down Old Coachman Road where you can park for a "mere" $5 and the walk isn't bad. Traffic is very heavy well before and after the game so plan accordingly.

Facing AL's best, Nola fans 10 to lead Phils
Baseball's best offense met its match on Wednesday night in Aaron Nola. Nola struck out a career-high 10 batters in six stellar innings, and Cameron Rupp blasted a pair of two-run homers for his first career multihomer game to lead the Phillies to a 9-0 win over the first-place Astros at Citizens Bank Park. The loss was just the 13th in 50 road games this year for the Astros, who own the Majors' best road winning percentage (.740).

Phillies deal Neshek to Rox for 3 prospects
The Phillies traded right-handed reliever Pat Neshek and cash to the Rockies on Wednesday night for three Minor Leaguers: shortstop Jose Gomez and right-handers Alejandro Requena and J.D. Hammer. All three were named South Atlantic League All-Stars this year.

Competition ahead, Rupp breaks free of slide
Next season, decisions will need to be made at catcher for the Phillies. To that end, Cameron Rupp hit a pair of two-run home runs in Wednesday night's 9-0 victory over the Astros at Citizens Bank Park. In doing so, he became the first Phillies catcher with a multihomer game since Mike Lieberthal on Sept. 17, 2006, at Houston's Minute Maid Park.

Trade target Kendrick exits with bruised hand
A pitch that struck Howie Kendrick's left hand on Wednesday night might have sunk his chances to be traded before Monday's 4 p.m. ET non-waiver Trade Deadline. Kendrick sustained a bruise in the third inning of a 9-0 victory over the Astros at Citizens Bank Park and left the game in the fourth. It is unclear if he will miss any time because of it.
