The Army-Navy football game, coming up Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, isn’t the only time the rival service academies will square off in the City of Brotherly Love this season.

The academies announced Wednesday that Citizens Bank Park will host the Army-Navy baseball series next April.

Citizens Bank Park has been home to the Philadelphia Phillies since 2004. It is the third Major League Baseball venue to host Army and Navy: The teams played at Batimore’s Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 2006 and 2018, and Boston’s Fenway Park held one Army-Navy baseball game in 2018 as well.

Shortly after the 2020 MLB season begins, the Phillies will be out of town when Army and Navy play one game on Friday, April 10 and a doubleheader on Saturday, April 11.
