The Phillies home opener to the 2017 season is just moments away. We're down at the ball park to take in the sights and sounds.
You can stream the game on CSNPhilly.com, of course, but we thought we'd share a couple of things we saw during the pregame below.
The most important was the Chase Utley sighting behind the Phillies dugout during batting practice. Strangely enough, he was not on the field and appears to have gained a few pounds and aged rather rapidly.

There are cheesesteaks.
Don't think you'll need a Phillies koozie today as it's currently 43 degrees but could come in handy during hitting season. pic.twitter.com/BWlALFBYIk— Enrico (@The700Level) April 7, 2017
And the Phillies GM rocking a sweet 'P' pin.

The Phanatic is here so it's officially time for Phillies baseball. pic.twitter.com/uI0Kd10v18— Enrico (@The700Level) April 7, 2017
Also, there are nachos in helmets.

Phils home opener at 3:05 on CSNPhilly.com. Best to get a cheesesteak in Ashburn Alley first. Wait in line with us at Tony Luke's and see what we order.Posted by The700Level.com on Friday, April 7, 2017
