I Have Tickets For "Mr. Padre Weekend"

Petco Park at NightA month ago I bought tickets for the Padres-Rockies games tonight and tomorrow at Petco Park through the Padres web site. It's "Mr. Padre Weekend," honoring our team's great future Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn! I took 137 San Diego Catholic School Alums to see Tony's final game as a player at Qualcomm Stadium in 2001, so I had to be present for these games too!

My friend Marisa Cullen is going with me tonight and we'll be sitting in section 114's row 35. Neither of us has sat that low on The Pet's left field side yet for a Pads game, so it'll be a new view for us.

On Saturday I'll have the honor of taking my friend Randi Linn Rowe to her very first game at Petco Park! It will be an extra special night for her memory banks, as the Padres will retire Tony G's number 19 in a ceremony before the game. In honor of Tony and the position he played for so many years, I bought tickets out in right field, in section 137's row 14.

Above is my favorite photo that I've taken so far at Petco Park! I shot it from section 301's row 22 during the Padres-Giants game on Sunday, April 11. To see a bunch of photos I took at The Pet during the Aztec Invitational Baseball Tournament in March, visit the front page from March 16, 2004.
