Opening Day at San Diego Petco Park
I attended the opening of Petco Park, the new home of the
San Diego Padres, on March 13, 2004.
Actually it wasn't the Padre's Opening Day, it was
the San Diego State Aztecs Invitational, which was held
during the week before the pro teams start their season.
Tony Gwinn, now the coach of the Aztecs,
will always remain a hero in the eyes of
San Diego baseball fans. Here he recieves a
check for $1M from Padres club owner
John Moores for the San Diego State
I had a really great seat, right behind
home plate and spent the whole day exploring the
stadium and watching a couple of college baseball games.
