Editorial Review of
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres play in the National League Western Division. The San Diego Franchise was founded in 1969, the Padres have won the National League Pennant twice, in 1984 and 1998, losing in the World Series both times. Since 2004, they play at Petco Park in San Diego, California. The team has played its spring training games at the Peoria Sports Complex in Peoria, Arizona since 1994. They share this stadium with the Seattle Mariners. The franchise has a number of players in the Major League Hall of Fame, including their newest inductee Ricky Henderson, who was inducted to the Cooperstown group in 2009.
One thing the San Diego Padres know how to do is treat their fans right. They constantly give back to the community through fundraisers, promotions and special events. Some of the projects include Stand Up To Cancer and Diamonds and Dreams from Chevrolet. For die hard fans, San Diego Padres are now on twitter and facebook and you can even take a look behind the scenes with a PETCO Park tour. Aspiring youth players can also go to the website to get tips and drills from the pros. There is also a “Frequent Friar” club for religious game goers that offers special contests, discounts and other offers (this season its even free). What are you waiting for? Let’s go out to the ball game.
