It wasn't really long ago that the Phillies sold out 257 consecutive games during their run to five straight National League East titles.

Those days, now four years in the rearview, seem like nothing but a dream -- never moreso than when you log onto the Phillies official website to scope for tickets as the home opener approaches on April 11.

With the Phillies Spring Pass, offered by the team through MLB's Ballpark App, you can get into 12 of the Phils' 13 games in April (all but their home opener against the Padres) for just $50. That's just over $4 per game.

On the day of each game, after paying your $50, you'll get an access barcode sent to your mobile device, which gives you access to the park as a standing room only ticket holder. Then 15 minutes before the first pitch, your seating location will be sent to your phone and you can go sit down. 

Additionally, (and we don't condone stealing by any means), but there should be plenty to room to snag an upper-level seat (or sneak to the lower level if you want to be bold).

You can buy up to six of these passes to sit with friends and family and it offers considerable savings over single game tickets. In fact, if you plan to go to three or more games in April it makes sense to buy the spring pass.

The Phils face the Padres, Nationals, Mets and Indians at home during the month.
