Tonight the San Diego Padres are selling standing room only tickets for only $11. I think it’s great the Pades are giving fans an inexpensive way of getting into the ballpark to honor Tony Gywnn tonight. I am downtown and have an hour to decide if I will be making my way into the stadium. I have never seen downtown this packed in my two years in San Diego. It is great to see so many fans from all teams coming out to honor Gywnn tonight.

There is an eery baseball buzz in the air tonight, in a good way, on the night the Padres and the rest of the MLB honors one of its greatest humans and ambassadors.
