    The Padres have a day where they let fans go on the field?

    The actual field, not just the warning track?

    Okay. Somebody explain this to me. RIGHT. NOW.
    Quite amazing that the field didn't burst into flames like it does here in New York. Thank goodness they keep us confined to the warning track. hh

    Great pictures PadreHomer!
    I've heard that they are doing a one day only version on April 5 with the team taking batting practice.

    There was a Madonna concert in early November, so the weekend before they let us have the whole field and gave us foam baseballs.

    And those tight curves in turn one on the third deck . . . damn . .. with chains between you and the "lesson on the true nature of gravity". I would hate to come into that turn at about 190 . . . loose in the corner, tight on center with about 7 bevies swirlin' in me gut (ok, I can really only afford 6). Excellent looking ballpark though . . . gonna have to get down to the southern portion of my old homestate someday.

    Too bad about that tailgate party area though. Gonna miss that.
    The area beyond centerfield is the Park at the Park. For $5, fans can buy a ticket that gives them access to that area where they can sit on beach towels as well as standing room only areas. That picture is already quite out of date as the area beyond the outfield has developed quite substantially with condos, a few hotels, and an office building. Believe me, that is definitely not the way we tailgate here in America's Finest City.

    Good points.....this place is definatly not Fenway or Yankee Stadium. If you notice the scoreboard in the last pic (sorry about the size) it is a tie game against a divisional team and the place was empty. This was a Saturday afternoon game.

    These shots of Petco were taken in April of 2008. This park was easily the cleaniest stadium I have ever been in. The site lines were great and so was the sound system. It reminded me of Camden Yards.

    This always kind of reminds as if jacobs field and pnc had a baby. Then for baby shower presents they got a factory and a few palm trees.
