Here is a great way to do business and have some Phillies fun.

The Phillies and the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce are teaming up to host a new "Business Behind Home Plate" event on Friday, April 1, at Citizens Bank Park. This unique, interactive business-networking luncheon will give attendees an inside look into the team's culture and the business of baseball.

During the luncheon, guests will also have the chance to meet Phillies alumni, the Phillie Phanatic and broadcast announcers, as well as partake in photo opportunities with the 2008 World Series trophy. Each individual ticket purchased to the event includes a voucher for two tickets to any Phillies home game in April or May, excluding Nemours Opening Day.
