Implosion Photo Gallery

Veterans Stadium has officially been reduced to a pile of concrete rubble in South Philadelphia. The implosion, going off without a hitch, brought the structure down in just about one minute after 33 years of sports and concerts at the landmark. Since words can't do justice to the implosion, PhillyBaseballNews.com decided to bring you photos of the event courtesy of Associated Press.
