Hello Baseball Fans!
In San Diego, we had our Members (aka Season Ticket Holders) Meeting on January 24 and that was the last time I was at Petco Park. I don’t know about you …. but I simply LOVE being at the ballpark! There is just something about it … even when there isn’t a game. And when you have the opportunity to walk on the field and sit in the dugout – well, it’s just fun!
Tonight is the 15th Annual Padres Awards Dinner and I will be attending. Last year it was held on the Petco Park Diamond (and was fabulous) but this year it is back in The Hall of Champions at Balboa Park … and likely just as well since we have been having intermittent rain today. I so look forward to talking with players, the coaching staff, the leadership team, and the media that we’ve come to know and love through the years. Look for tweets tonight throughout the event.
Tomorrow is the 2013 Fan Fest! It will be rise and shine and get to Petco Park by 8 AM. The Padres have many activities planned and I look forward to sharing it with you.
The bottom line is … baseball is back … pitchers and catchers report next week. Gotta love it!
