Get ready to head back to your favorite ballpark with some new enhancements for the 2024 season.

The Phillies on Monday announced their plans for the upcoming season that included a plethora of new items. From technology enhancements, new dishes to dive into, an eye-popping mural, promotional giveaways, theme nights and more, Citizens Bank Park is going to have it all. In addition to the new items and features, the Phillies will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ballpark throughout the season.

"While 2024 marks our 20th anniversary at Citizens Bank Park, we are ready to make even more history at our world-class ballpark," said Phillies Executive Vice President David Buck. "The excitement surrounding Phillies baseball has never been greater, and as we celebrate the start of the season at home, we look forward to our fans experiencing all the terrific new enhancements that are part of our game day experience."

Let's dive in to what's new at Citizens Bank Park:

20th anniversary celebrations

•April 12: Exactly 20 years after the inaugural game at the ballpark, that game's starting pitcher, Randy Wolf, will throw out the first pitch.

Citizens Businessperson's Specials: Held on May 8, May 23, June 19, July 31 and August 18. Aug. 18 is also Toyota Phillies Alumni Day, with an on-field pregame event.

The bidding starts Monday at 6:30 p.m. and runs until April 7, 6:00 p.m. You can find the full list of items and place your bids here.

Enhancing the fan experience

Expanding MLB's Go-Ahead Entry Lanes: Last season at the First Base Gate, CBP was the first to debut this free-flow facial authentication technology. It resulted in fast, hands-free, eyes-up entry that more than 17,000 fans utilized. Due to the success, the Phillies have added Go-Ahead Entry lanes to the Third Base and Left Field Gates. All fans will need to register on the MLB Ballpark App in order to access it.

New field level display: The out-of-town scoreboard that previously held space on the right field wall, has been replaced with a high-tech field-level display. Now, the display will be able to showcase in-game stats, out-of-town scores, videos and more.

Changing table for adults with disabilities and caregivers: The Phillies have installed an adult-sized, height-adjustable changing table in the family restroom by the West Suite and Club Entrance. The new space provides a sanitary, comfortable and safe space for assisted changing.

New bag policy: Guests are prohibited from bringing non-clear bags, including backpacks and draw-string bags, into the ballpark. This is consistent with bag policies for neighboring sports teams. Only clutch purses and/or fanny packs (no larger than 5" x 7"), clear bags (no larger than 12" x 6" x 12"), medical bags and diaper bags will be permitted inside.

Good eats

"Next Generation" mural

A new mural was unveiled on Monday by the Phillies, SEI and Mural Arts Philadelphia. Located above Ashburn Alley, the "Next Generation" mural was designed by Jose "Busta" Bustamante, an artist from Chia, Colombia who now resides in Mantua Township, NJ.

The concept was selected during a contest held by SEI and the Phillies in an effort to showcase creativity and new ideas by local artists at CBP.
