  • For people of all ages, or children only?

  • So disappointed I can't go. My appendix had to rupture yesterday and I had to have emergency surgery last night 😢.

    Been a huge San Diego Padres fan for 20 years and I was most excited to see the '98 replica clubhouse and hopefully meet some of the players from then. They were my heroes and still are my favorite sports team of all time. I remember being on channel 8 for having my room decked out in Padres memorabilia. A lot of which I still have.

    Not to mention I can't wait for this season!!! I love the direction of the franchise!!!! GO PADRES!!!!!
