West Coast Baseball Parks: San Diego Padres

San Diego is really nice! We stayed right near the shore of the Bay. We only had a few hours to go look around and visited the USS Midway aircraft carrier. Pretty amazing! But all too soon it was time to head to Petco Park. No really, it was too soon. Turns out they had a crazy start time of 5:40 pm and we didn’t realize it until we got there. So we missed the first three innings, which made me really sad because I like to keep score. But I worked it out with a little recap help from the At Bat app, and we settled in. Oh and did I mention it was Star Wars night at the Padres?

This park is REALLY nice! It had an outdoor mall feel to it out on the concourse. Alas, I had already missed so much of the game, I didn’t want to go stand in line for a vendor, so I didn’t get to try any food speciality they may boast in. Anyway, one really neat part of the stadium is how they used a building along one side. Kind of reminded me of Camden Yards a bit. Nice but short stay and we are off to Arizona!
