Root for the Home Team

Knock Mother's Day out of the park with tickets to the Padres game! The Sunday night game on Mother's Day is held at Petco Park and will feature the Padres vs. Miami. Not only are the Padres hosting a salute to military moms but get to the park early and enjoy the Kidsfest with inflatables, games, face painting, and giveaways. It's sure to be a lively and festive day!
