Phillies fans should prepare for another nostalgic year at the ballpark. 

Prior to games in May, June and July, the Phillies will hold retirement ceremonies for Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard.

Rollins' ceremony will take place Saturday night, May 4, when the Phillies host the Nationals at 7:05.

Then comes Utley's night, Friday, June 21 against the Marlins at 7:05.

Howard will be honored Sunday, July 14, when the Phils face the Nationals at 1:05.

Rollins never officially retired but hasn't played since June 2016 with the White Sox. 

Howard retired the first week of September, and Utley hung up his cleats once the playoffs ended. 

In many ways, 2018 was the final chapter in the book of the 2008 Phillies. Jayson Werth also retired in late June after his situation with the Mariners didn't work out. Carlos Ruiz hasn't officially retired but did not find a team in 2018.

Cole Hamels and Ryan Madson, though, are still going strong as the final two active members of that championship team.

Fans interested in making it to all three ceremonies can do so with the six-game Phillies Legends Ticket pack, which includes the three retirement nights along with any other three games.
