    Pretty pricey but a beautiful stadium right in the downtown area. Check out the model of the Navy aircraft carrier on the third base line!

    Get a Randy Jones BBQ sliced brisket sandwich (w/ extra sauce) in center field. Go to the Hall Of Fame Bar in left (if it's a blowout) & the Ballpark Brews stand on the first base side for good beer.

    Love their healthy selections. Paradise Bowls serves fresh fruits granola with acai juice. Seafood selection of clam chowder and shrimp avocado salad? FRESH! Other ballparks need to take note!

    Incorporating the Western Metal Building in the ballpark is awesome. A really good beer selection, in a wonderful part of town. Day or Night game, the weather is going to be comfortable.

    Depending on time of day, easily fast park, buy tickets right on Park, Tony Gwynn Dr. Lots of temp parking to buy tixx. Avoid surcharges if it makes sense & cents for you Padres faithful. LA fans pay!

    The Padres stadium was voted the best in the MLB last year, and if you take in a game you'll soon discover why. Great views, great food options, and lots of fun to be had in the surrounding area. Read more

    I had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at this very stadium. As soon as I left the mound I was offered a 7-year contract. Unfortunately, I was not able fulfill due to a prior engagement.
