With another promising roster of players who can do it all, the Padres hit
the road for a steady string of exciting match-ups that will have fans buzzing all over town. Sure, it's always a good idea
to head out to Petco and see them when they're on their home field, but every fan needs to eventually make it to an exciting
road match-up in order to see the Padres from a completely different perspective. When your favorite player smacks a clutch
hit that silences the home crowd, you'll be glad that you're watching the box score on your smart phone, as you'll be knee-deep

like Jeff Gyorko, Chase Headley and more, the Padres have plenty of firepower and dreams of rising all the way to the top
of the N.L. West, though it's never easy in the same division as the Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Rockies and Giants. On the mound,
Andrew Cashner also tends to quiet opposing batters and they have a talented bullpen that knows how to get the job done, making
for an exciting roster that is always in the middle of one intense battle or another. As soon as you're there watching the
big game the way it was meant to be seen, you'll understand that this is a game that cannot be contained by the home viewing
When two talented ball clubs take to the diamond for an exciting match-up,
there is only one place to be, and it definitely isn't sitting on your couch wondering how the game is getting on. Baseball
has been around for well over a century, giving it enough time to gain the reputation as one of the most popular sports in
the entire world. But even though baseball is now played at a high level all over the world, Major League Baseball is still
the premier league for a reason, and it isn't because there is a lack of talent on the diamond. Home games are practically
a birth right for any baseball fan, but it's on the road where you get to see what your team is made of when they go up against
the top teams in the league.
In the N.L. West, the Padres have to go up against a steady string
of talented foes, with the Rockies, Giants, Dodgers and Diamondbacks all looking to rise to the top of the standings. But
the Padres have built nothing short of a powerhouse franchise – a team packed with players who can do it all, helping
to guarantee an exciting brand of baseball that makes them one of the most explosive squads in the league. Thanks to a well-balanced
roster that always makes it tough on the opposition, this is a team that you definitely need to look out for as they hope
to put it all together, reach their potential and get back to the postseason.
San Diego Padres Trivia
you know that Tony Gwynn won the batting crown eight different times while playing for the Padres?
Gwynn goes down as
one of the greatest pure hitters in baseball history for a reason, as nobody really figured out how to pitch to him throughout
his unbelievable career. After first winning the batting title in 1984, Gwynn would win it three more times in the 80s and
four times in the 1990s, wrapping up his career with 15 different All-Star appearances and a ridiculous.338 career batting
average. He would even win five different Gold Glove Awards – not bad for a guy who was originally recruited in college
to play point guard in basketball.
San Diego Padres History
MLB tickets to see the Padres have been around
since 1969, giving fans plenty of thrills over the years as they rose to prominence in the National League. San Diego captured
its first World Series appearance with the help of Tony Gwynn in 1984, and then went again in 1998. These days, the Padres
are building back into a contender with a group of talented players who have their eye on taking the franchise to the next
level, giving you plenty of reasons to put down the remote and head out to see if they have what it takes.
The Padres play their home games at Petco Park, a beautiful ballpark near the waterfront in downtown San Diego.
With a strong fan following, the Padres always play in front of a crowd that knows a thing or two about showing their support
for their team, making it always a good time to come out and see a baseball game the way it was meant to be seen. The road
games are just as exhilarating, however, and you'll see that loud and clear as soon as you head out to see the Padres during
a prominent away matchup. Whether it's a rivalry against the Dodgers or Giants or an interleague game against a foe they don't
normally play, there plenty of opportunities to be a part of the Padres' season.
