To get ready for the constant roar of fans at Citizens Bank Park, the Diamondbacks have attempted to replicate the noise on a loudspeaker during their practices, video credits to @CamCox12

The tape used for this auditory exercise harks back to the 2020 COVID season when fans were barred from ballparks, prompting the MLB to pump in simulated fan noises through speakers.

These rowdy Phillies fans have played a large role in the team’s success at home during the postseason.

Citizens Bank Park boasts the highest winning percentage for the Phillies compared to any other team and their respective home ballparks during the postseason.

Notably, the Diamondbacks are surprisingly not that far behind, as Chase Field is 3rd overall.

It’s moments like these that cement Citizens Bank Park’s reputation as the most intimidating ballpark for opposing ballclubs to visit during the postseason.
