Times Square is not only the heart of the city for New Yorkers, but also for tourists.

No place else attracts visitors like the crossroads of the world and neighboring areas like Bryant Park.

It has some of the most ideal places to capture life’s ideal moments.

Another place that attracts tourists a short drive east is Citi Field.

Routinely it welcomes intimate groups for three day stretches. This weekend, it’s the Philadelphia Phillies.

Catcher Erik Kratz and Jimmy Rollins spoke to PIX 11 News about what it is like for visiting ball players to come into the city at time when security is beefed up and whether or not they question the idea of having their families join them in the city for business and pleasure.
