Avid baseball fans may have their own favorite team that they follow obsessively, never missing a game, cursing and crying when they lose one (and cursing and crying when they win one!). There’s something about sport events that just bring out the cursing and crying in everyone! But a true fanatical fan of baseball will never miss out on the opportunity to watch a game from the seats of the local stadium, no matter what city they are in or what team is playing. For those people, it’s all about the love of the game. We get it, we truly do, and as San Diego is home to one of our favorite teams, The San Diego Padres, we try never to miss out on a game or a chance to watch said Padres game from the seats of Petco Park, one of the more unique stadiums in the US.
Many Major League Baseball (MLB) teams have moved from city to city and state to state, but not the Padres; since 1969, they have been based right here in San Diego, allowing generations of fans to call them theirs. Their spring training home is located in Peoria, Arizona, but the rest of the year you will find them playing and practicing in Petco Park. They’ve made it to the World Series twice without winning, and they are the only team in the MLB to have never thrown a no-hitter, but we don’t care; the Padres belong to us, and we will support them until the end of time!
Opened in 2004, Petco Park is based in the middle of downtown San Diego, shadowed by skyscrapers and located just a stone’s throw from the bay. This beautiful stadium is the pride of San Diego. Not a domed stadium like Chase Field in Arizona, it still ranks high up in the list of American stadiums, and a day spent enjoying a San Diego Padres game under the clear blue California skies is a day well spent.
