Phillies’ first baseman Ryan Howard might not be able make a difference on the field at Citizen's Bank Park yet but he certainly can elsewhere in the city. He was in the Hunting Park today to help dedicate a new field for the neighborhood. What was once a typical litter strewn lot is a brand new pristine baseball park. “This park is amazing. It looks beautiful,” the Phillies’ injured first baseman said. It is the first phase of a $3-million public/private project revitalizing Hunting Park.
