Who needs to tailgate when you can tie the knot instead right before the Phillies game?

For Rob and Jackie Hackl, their wedding was a home run.

The Northern Liberties couple tied the knot Sunday at Citizens Bank Park.

"If you get married at the park it's on an off home game. We didn't want to do that. We wanted to get married at the park and watch the Phillies play," said the bride.

The entire ceremony was Phillies themed, including the dress code - the bride's veil and rally towels for their guests.

After the ceremony, the couple and their guests enjoyed cheesesteaks as they watched the Phillies play the Atlanta Braves.

Across the street at Lincoln Financial Field, the line was out the door to audition to perform the national anthem during an Eagles home game.

Over 400 people came out for their chance to compete.

In the end, 25 people will make it to the next round, where three winners and an alternate will be chosen.
