PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — With the baseball season fast approaching, the Phillies are giving fans a glimpse of what’s new on the menu and at the Majestic Clubhouse.
Ashburn Alley is making room for donuts and fried chicken, courtesy of Federal Donuts (top photo). There is also going to be a beer garden located behind the bullpens.
And that’s not all, says executive chef Anthony Campagna.
“We have a Chicago dog; a chicken burger; and a slow cooked, hickory, pulled pork for Harry the K’s Restaurant in the Alley. We also have a trio of burritos, pulled chicken, pulled pork, and a mushroom,” he tells KYW Newsradio.
The Alley has also been turned into a free WiFi hotspot. Tom Nagle of Comcast says you don’t have to be a subscriber to get service.
“We really wanted to build places where people are standing around and enjoying themselves, which tends to be out in Ashburn Alley, and give them that connectivity,” Nagle said.
Lots of new merchandise is coming in too, including an entire wall of Phillies’ caps and collector’s items from the game in progress — things like bases and used balls.
