San Diego Padres provide lunch for First Responders and more

Today would have been Opening Day of the 2020 San Diego Padres Season

March 26, 2020

Today we would have been celebrating Opening Day at Petco Park with the San Diego Padres hosting the Colorado Rockies to kick off their 2020 MLB Season. But because of the coronavirus crisis we face we don't know when games will be played again, but we know they will.

Message from the Padres:

In recognition of Opening Day we are partnering today with Phil's BBQ to provide lunch for UCSD Healthcare and San Diego Blood Bank employees and volunteers who are on the front lines in our fight against the Coronavirus. Additionally, at 1:10PM today we will play God Bless America at Petco Park as a symbol of solidarity with our resilient country and all of you during this time of crisis.

Thank you to our friends at the San Diego Padres for doing this and supporting the community on what would have been a day of celebration to kick off a new season. #StayConnected #UnitedSanDiego
