Some news from the Philadelphia Phillies today: tickets for Spring Training 2011 go on sale Jan. 7, 2011.
The Phillies formally announced a schedule today, but we expect a change or two. One reason why: Both the Phillies and the Orioles released tentative schedules where they’re playing at Detroit on March 26. Since it’s highly unlikely both the Phillies and the Orioles will be in Lakeland at 1:05 p.m., we expect a change. Second, there are no night games on this schedule. The Phillies usually play two or three night games over the course of a spring, either in Clearwater or against the Yankees; we would expect no less in 2011. So go ahead and make those travel plans, but do so knowing there might be a change.
