Clearwater, FL -- The welcome mat is out on Clearwater Beach for Phillies fans in town for spring training.

The city has heralded the return of the team with banners along Memorial Causeway between downtown and the roundabout.

The usual fan-friendly establishments - The Palm Pavilion, Frenchy's restaurants and Bob Heilman's Beachcomber - may be the more popular haunts for the annual visitors, but others have joined in the mix.

The newest place on the beach - The Brown Boxer - has festooned its outdoor patio with a number of large Phillies flags, to draw customers inside. Even the Beach Bar has put up a "Welcome Phillies" sign.

Spring training - and the business it brings to hotels and restaurants - is always awaited with anticipation. It marks the end of the winter doldrums on the beach and paves the way for a larger visitor uptick - Spring Break.
