- The first baseball game ever played at Petco Park, on March 11, 2004, was the first game of a four-team NCAA invitational tournament hosted by San Diego State University.
- I had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at this very stadium. As soon as I left the mound I was offered a 7-year contract. Unfortunately, I was not able fulfill due to a prior engagement.
- The first ever game ever at PETCO featured Mr. Padre, Tony Gwynn…but not the Padres. As manager of San Diego State’s baseball team, Gwynn led the Aztecs to a W over the Houston Cougars on 3/11/04.
- Patriotic. Powerful. Pride. Padres. More P words. The foghorn that sounds after every home run is actually a recording of the Navy's USS Ronald Reagan, based in San Diego. Perfect!
