SEEN AND HEARD AT CITIZENS BANK PARK

PHILADELPHIA - If there’s any doubt what winning does for a ballclub’s attendance, take a look at the Phillies, who are reaping the benefits of their World Series championship.

Sunday’s game drew 45,239, the 20th sellout in 26 home games this season. Philadelphia already has cracked the 1 million mark and is on pace to draw 3.52 million fans. That’s nearly a million more fans than came to Citizens Bank Park in 2005, its second year of existence.
