Baseball @ PETCO Park, San Diego

Petco Park is an open-air ballpark in downtown San Diego, California, USA. It opened in 2004, replacing Qualcomm Stadium as the home park of Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres. The stadium is named after the animal and pet supplies retailer Petco, which is based in San Diego and paid for the naming rights.

Besides baseball games, this stadium is also venue for major music & concert even in San Diego. Other event such as the audition of American Idol & Comic con International 2010.

I visit this stadium due to it unique structure and I can't get it in Malaysia. This baseball stadium is quite colourful and with several nice feature.

Rating:7/10(The guided tour of Petco park give you a glimpse of what is inside this baseball stadium. You get to know some history and some of the VIP area from this tour. However this tour has become a bit commercialize and the fee charged is a bit expensive as the visitor to the tour need to buy a game ticket as well. Overall, be prepared to spend at least USD21 for the visit).

They have VIP lounge which display the history of the San Diego Padres team.


The VIP is treated very well here. They pay huge amount of membership fee here.
