Season Ticket Holder of the Month

Chuck Schmidt

Seat Location: Section 111

How long has your family had season tickets?

We've had tickets for 12 years now.

Who is your favorite current player and why?

Chase Utley, because he plays the game the right way.

Who is your favorite player of all time and why?

Michael Jack Schmidt. I watched him play almost every game of his career and have never seen anyone play the game better in my opinion.

What is your best memory as a fan?

No doubt that it's watching the Phillies win the World Series in 2008 with my two sons and daughter at the ballpark. A close second would be watching Doc throw the No-hitter in the playoffs against Cincinatti.

What is your favorite concession?

Tony Luke's roast pork.

What position would you play if you were a member of the Phillies and why?

I'd play center field because that's what I grew up playing.

What is the best part of Citizens Bank Park?

I love the atmosphere that the fans bring to the game.

What is the best part of being a season ticket holder?

The best part is being able to watch my Phillies at any home game that I want.

Where were your season tickets at Veterans Stadium (if applicable)?

I don't remember the specific section but we were on the first base side.

Have you ever caught a foul ball or homerun, if so who hit it?

I caught a foul ball from Jayson Werth.

If you could start any Phillies pitcher in Game 7 of the World Series who would it be and why?

I would have to say Cole Hamels because he has already won this team a World Series.

Do you remember the first Phillies game you ever attended as a fan? If so when was it?

It was at Connie Mac Stadium fifty years ago.

What is your favorite promotion or giveaway?

I like any of the Bobble Head giveaways.

If you could have dinner with one Phillies player who would it be and why?

Jimmy Rollins, we met him in Clearwater and he seemed like a really good guy.

Do you have any superstitions or traditions related to watching the Phillies?

When they won the World Series all four of us sat in the same seats for every game. We didn't switch it up once.

Any stories or facts that you would like to add?

We have been down to spring training every other year and stay at the Sand Pearl in Clearwater Beach. We were lucky enough to meet a bunch of the current Phillies players and J-Roll was nice enough to chat with us on the beach and take a picture with us.
