Tailgate Lots, Phillies Batting Practice, and More Details for Game 3 of the World Series
The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros, currently tied 1-1 after two games, will open up three straight games in Philadelphia starting tonight at 8:03 EST.
Philadelphia will host its first World Series in over ten years, and the park seems to be doing some things differently tonight compared to the regular season and past series. Here’s everything you need to know if you’re heading over to CBP for Game 3.

Tailgating lots are set to open at 3:00, five hours before first pitch. Non-tailgating lots will open at 5:00, which is also when the gates to the stadium will open. All lots are cashless.
The Phillies are set to take outdoor batting practice a few minutes after 5:00, which gives fans the option to experience that in person, something that doesn’t happen during the regular season. Bryce Harper usually doesn’t hit outside, but don’t miss the opportunity to see Kyle Schwarber, Rhys Hoskins, Nick Castellanos, and more guys rake baseballs into the seats of CBP.
If you were one of the hundreds of thousands of people who entered the raffle and didn’t get a ticket, there’s still an option for you over at the Sports Complex. The Wells Fargo Center will open up its facility and all bars, offering food and $5 beers for fans to watch together. They are also offering a tailgating package deal, where you can rent out a spot in the parking lot and have a good time outside. Read more about both options here.
Tonight’s first pitch is still up in the air. It was rumored last week that Bernie Parent would throw it out tonight, and with all due respect to Bernie, that would be an absolute disaster. Jimmy Rollins will throw out the first pitch for Game 4 on Tuesday.
Noah Syndergaard takes the hill for the Phillies tonight, going up against Lance McCullers Jr.
