When Jim Thome first walked onto the field at Citizens Bank Park, he had a sensation akin to that of a very hungry man entering a bakery and picking up the scent of a buttercream layer cake. Something was in the air, and he knew he was going to like it. Thome, who hit 47 home runs in 2003, the Phillies' last year at the Vet, still remembers that first batting practice, on April 3, 2004, as the ball club prepared to open its brand-new stadium with an exhibition game. "The ball carried really well," Thome recalled on a June visit with his current team, the Chicago White Sox. Really well.

If you need a reason for why the Phillies have reportedly targeted longtime baseball executive Andy MacPhail to join their much-maligned front office, look no further than Citizens Bank Park's visitors' dugout last week. MacPhail's biggest triumphs came in 1987 and 1991, when he was general manager for two Minnesota Twins world championships, and he followed them by spending 12 less-successful years as president and CEO of the Chicago Cubs. But the Baltimore Orioles' recent success - their 2012 wild-card berth and last year's American League Championship Series appearance - wouldn't have happened without moves made by the now-62-year-old MacPhail.

The rematch of last season's Flyers Cup AAA championship will take place at Citizens Bank Park on Jan. 4 as part of the Winter Classic festivities. Malvern Prep announced on Tuesday that it would face La Salle at 5 p.m. at the home of the Phillies. The game will be followed by Neumann University vs. Penn State. In last year's Flyers Cup, the Explorers downed Malvern Prep, 3-2, in overtime at the Wells Fargo Center, before falling to Pittsburgh's Upper St. Clair in the state final.

IN THE 2 1/2 years since he last played with the Phillies, Raul Ibanez has been a playoff hero for the Yankees, experienced a third stint with the Mariners and, at the age of 41, signed a 1-year deal with the Angels. He has not, however, been back to Citizens Bank Park. The Yankees didn't visit South Philly in 2012, nor did the Mariners last season, so tonight is Ibanez's first game back in town since he left. He's looking forward to it. "I think it will be great to get back there," he said before a recent game against Washington at Nationals Park.

NEW YORK - Come Jan. 2, when the Flyers and Rangers play the Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park, the Phillies' home ballpark will be transformed into an homage to outdoor hockey. The NHL's signature regular-season event will appear seamlessly integrated into a facility specifically erected to provide an optimal baseball-viewing experience. The bulk of the preparation responsibilities fall on the shoulders of Don Renzulli, the NHL's senior vice president of events. In April, he started overseeing biweekly logistical planning meetings with about 50 people in the largest conference room on the 14th floor in the NHL's New York offices.

The Phillies weren't able to take advantage of Washington righthander Max Scherzer on an "off night. " At least judging by his recent performances, Scherzer was downright hittable Friday night. Beatable is another story. Scherzer pitched eight innings and allowed two runs on five hits in a 5-2 win over the Phillies to kick off the Pete Mackanin interim managerial era at Citizens Bank Park. Mackanin replaced Ryne Sandberg, who surprisingly resigned on Friday. Scherzer's two previous outings were an awful lot to live up to, and he entered Friday's game bringing the name of Johnny Vander Meer back into the public consciousness.

A stoic, old-school manager, Ryne Sandberg showed some emotion Friday in his last day with the Phillies. Sandberg, 55, arrived at Citizens Bank Park at 10 a.m. and then dropped a bombshell on his bosses: He was walking away from this season of endless frustration and consistent losing. Third base coach Pete Mackanin was named the interim manager, the third time he has been in the position. With a 26-48 record entering Friday, the Phillies had the worst mark in Major League Baseball, and the pain from managing a team that last produced a winning season in 2011 was clearly evident.

The Phillies have already faced Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer three times through 74 games this season. They haven't opposed the righthander on this kind of roll. On Friday night at Citizens Bank Park, Scherzer will make his first start since he pitched a no-hitter Saturday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The 30-year-old pitcher is coming off consecutive complete games. His two singles as a hitter in that span are more than he has surrendered on the mound. "You just have to refocus and not get complacent," Scherzer told reporters in Washington.

NEW YORK - Ballpark radar guns should soon be reintroduced to Ken "100 Miles" Giles. Giles, who pitched with diminished velocity early in the season, is again nearing triple digits with his fastball. The Phillies' 24-year-old setup man has eclipsed 98 m.p.h. 10 times over the last week, according to the PITCHf/x pitch-tracking system. Entering Tuesday's game, eight of Giles' 98-plus-m.p.h. heaters this season came in the ninth inning of Wednesday's loss to the Baltimore Orioles at Citizens Bank Park.

Kyle Missry was looking to be a "catalyst" for the Jersey Shore baseball team. The recent St. Rose High School of Belmar graduate started and finished the winning rally in extra innings in the Carpenter Cup Classic semifinals. Missry, who didn't enter the game until the sixth inning, led off the 10th inning with a home run to spark Jersey Shore to a 6-5 victory over Delaware County Monday at Citizens Bank Park. Jersey Shore, the defending champion, advanced to face Suburban One League National/Bicentennial in the championship game of the 30th annual tournament Tuesday at 10 a.m. SOL National/Bicentennial defeated Berks County, 6-5, in the first semifinal.

It was the top of the second inning and there was cheering in the press box. Pat Gillick, the president of the worst team in baseball, had just watched Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco, second baseman Cesar Hernandez and catcher Cameron Rupp team up for an unconventional double play that cut down a St. Louis Cardinals base runner at home. "Hell of a play," Gillick said as he stood and clapped during a conversation with a reporter. When the Phillies used four hits, including a couple of doubles, to score three times in the bottom of the second inning off Cardinals ace Michael Wacha, Gillick's emotions surfaced again.

Adam Morgan repeated the routine six times, once before each inning of his first major-league start Sunday. The 25-year-old circled the mound as the Phillies threw his last warm-up pitch around the horn. When Morgan caught the ball from Maikel Franco, he tucked his glove under his right armpit and leaned over the back of the mound. Then he smacked the rosin bag three times against his left hand. The pattern worked fine as he tossed 52/3 innings and gave up one run in the Phillies' 9-2 win over the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park.

WHEN CATCHER Cameron Rupp asked Adam Morgan if he was nervous before taking the mound yesterday at Citizens Bank Park, the first time as a major leaguer, Morgan said "not yet. " Making his MLB debut, on Father's Day, in front of his dad, Wiley, and other family members, did the nerves ever arrive? "Honestly, not really," Morgan said. "It was more anxious and excited to see how my stuff played. Asking these guys some first-time advice about their debuts, and they're like, 'Don't look up.' Rupp did a good job just telling me, 'Just me and you playing catch.' That's what I did. I didn't look up and played a game of baseball.

Ben Revere ran to the warning track before stopping. The centerfielder had no choice but to watch the home run clear the fence and bounce into the bullpen in the sixth inning of the Phillies' 10-1 loss to St. Louis on Saturday at Citizens Bank Park. Aaron Harang, who started this season as a pleasant surprise, was unraveling again. Harang allowed four runs on seven hits, none bigger than Randal Grichuk's three-run homer in the sixth. Harang has a 10.65 ERA and opponents batted .272 against him in his last four starts.
