I went to the last Padres game in Arizona. Since it was the last game of the D-Backs season they awarded the fans with half off food. It was a great surprise. Now lets just say this... The Padres could use a little info from The Diamonds back organization on how food service is done. The first thing I noticed in THE B. O. B. (BANK ONE BALLPARK) is that their concessions are clearly mamarked and appealing to the eye. Sand Diego on the other hand has a bit of a Cloak and dagger effect. I searched for 20 minutes at Petco one time just to Find Sort serve Ice cream. The B.O.B also has many recognizable Food vendors. Such as Peter Piper Pizza, Blimpies Subs, Panda Express, McDonalds. Something comforting about seeing you food you know. Sand Diego seems to gone the CHEAP way and are using Generic Vendors. Yes, they have RUBIOS. But again I waited about 20 minutes for a quesadilla one day. The food in Arizona was a delight! The portions were huge. The quality was amazing! The prices are even cheaper then San Diego. One Stand I saw in the B.O.B was for a new Hot Dog Chain. Not sure what it was called but I have to tell you those Hot Dogs are amazing. Up to 5 different varieties. Back to San Diego and Petco Park... SD has the BIG DAWG. Basically the same dog that Randy Jones serverved last year at His BBQ. they are prices $5.00 and up. Yes, they are huge, but they are horrible in my opinion. I had to return my Hot DAWG 3 times due to the fact that the bun was like a sponge. They keep their "GRILLED" dogs in "WAITING" bins, thus they collect steam. It was one of the most frustrating experiences I have ever has at the PARK. On my third attempt at getting a Hot dog the "volunteer" went in the back to get me my dog. Well, the thing was not even fully cooked.
So what is the deal with PADRES and there concessions? Bottom line is they are trying to cut costs. They hire volunteers from local groups to serve us. The volunteers can make money for there groups. These people have little or no food service. The food has been prepackages and is so cheap. They have not spent money on signage. They really don't have to because the food is so cheap and generic. There Pizza vendor is Ogies. They are a local San Diego chain. I have no idea how much the Padres are charging them for there signage, but I have to think it is a huge amount. Considering a slice can go for 5 dollars and up. I can walk in to Dominos and get a large cheese pizza for $6.99!
Bottom line, the PADRES are cheap when it comes to there food service. It has to change.
Do you know what team(s) he played for? What years? What major league team's farm system? That would be a start.

PETCO Park is an open-air stadium in downtown San Diego, California. It opened in 2004, replacing Qualcomm Stadium as the home park of Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres. Before then, the Padres shared their stadium with the San Diego Chargers (of the NFL). The stadium is named after the animal and pet supplies retailer PETCO, which is based in San Diego and paid for the naming rights. Since the retailer spells its name in all capital letters, the ballpark name is in all caps as well. It is affectionately nicknamed "The Litter Box." Address & Phone:

They were brothers. Tony Gwynn, who died of cancer on June 16, 2014 at the age of 54, played his entire Hall of Fame career with the San Diego Padres (1982 to 2001). Chris Gwynn played for three teams during his career -- the Los Angeles Dodgers (1987 to 1991, 1994 to 1995), the Kansas City Royals (1992 to 1993) and the Padres, where he played alongside his older brother in 1996. Tony Gwynn's son Tony Jr. now plays for the Philadelphia Phillies.
