Today, I went to Petco Park–a very, very nice ballpark, by the way–to watch the Dodgers play the Padres. Of course, I took a camera along to record some of the action. All of the pictures are clickable, so you can see the high-res versions.
There was a tall fellow in a Padres uniform.
An large inflatable priest was set up on the premises.
We got there early, but people were already filtering in.
Today’s was Military Appreciation Day, as it is every Sunday home game. This one was very Air Force-y.
Matt Kemp on third base. A minute later, he was at Home Plate.
Andre Ethier pinch-hitting. He knocked in two runs at this at bat.
The Dodgers did a lot of hitting. Padres…not so much.
The Padres Bullpen gave up 4 runs in the 8th inning.
Quick reaction to avoid getting hit by the pitch. The ball is visible as that smear right next to the catcher’s mitt.
Looking to throw that next base hit.
Tony Gwynne has a nice statue at the park.
