PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — With theof a potential World Series win over the Houston Astros, fans are excited — and they’re buying Phillies gear quickly. Fans showed up in droves at the New Era Team Store in Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday to get their hands on everything that marks those moments.
Fans said they had to stop inside the store because they not only want to support the team, but they also want to have something to remember this historic playoff run.
“I feel good, last night was crazy,” said PJ Randall of South Philly, showing off his Bryce Harper jersey. “Let me tell you something, if Nola comes out tonight, we’ll win him on Thursday. We’re going to get him in Philadelphia, trust me.”
The store’s customers buy jerseys more than anything else, and Harper’s jerseys are the most popular.Tuesday with a two-run home run.
Hoodies and fitted hats with the Phillies logo are also flying off the shelves.
The fans are feeling confident and they hope the Phillies can close the deal here at home.
Joe Steinhardt of West Philly bought World Series jackets for his wife and for himself. Depending on the weather, they might put those jackets on when they watch Game 4 on Wednesday night.
“I think we’re going to see a win, I think 10-0,” Steinhardt said, sporting a gold chain. “And I think the Eagles are going to win tomorrow.”
The team store closes at 4 p.m., with another Phillies Block Party going on at 4:30 p.m. with a Ferris wheel, face painting, and other entertainment for kids and adults. Stadium gates open at 5:03 p.m.
