2014 San Diego Padres Schedule
The Padres are reloaded with top-tier players and aspirations of making a big move
up the divisional standings, though that's never an easy task in the always very competitive N.L. West. Come out and see all
of the skyscraping homers, sprawling defensive plays and nail-biting moments that you'll be talking about a long time after
it's all over if you head out to see one of the top match-ups on the Padres' schedule. Both home and on the road, the schedule
is brimming over with possibilities, as it's great to see Petco when it's loaded with great fans but it's also exciting to
get out and see a prominent away match-up.
With ballplayers 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. 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 experience no matter how big and
impressive your flatscreen is.
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. Once you're there watching
the big game the way it was meant to be seen, particularly when it's the Padres, you'll see loud and clear what all the buzz
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. 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. This is a team that tends to play a very exciting
brand of baseball and you never know what can happen when they take to the field against a talented foe. The next superstar
could come from anywhere, making this a team to keep your eye on.
San Diego Padres Trivia
Did you know
that Tony Gwynn played in college as a point guard on the hardwood?
We know that Gwynn is one of the greatest hitters
of all-time, smashing plenty of records during his storied career, but he was also a terror on the court in the years before
he played for the Padres. After playing high school ball locally, he stayed in the San Diego area and played college for the
San Diego State Aztecs, though he would eventually (wisely) focus on developing his talent on the diamond.
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 in downtown San Diego that has gained a reputation of being an exciting place to see a
big game. 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, though you're not going to really figure that out sitting at home
wondering what the atmosphere of the big game is like. But if you limit yourself to the home schedule, you're missing out
on 81 different opportunities to see the Padres do their thing on the road, and you'll see your favorite team from a completely
different perspective if you head out to see them during a highly anticipated away game.
