XX Sports Radio: Tom Garfinkel Interview (MP3)
- Garfinkel loves the idea of making Petco Park home to a Major League Soccer team. They are looking at different field configurations to see if they can fit a football field in Petco. Looking at bringing a bowl game in but it might require some construction. It is still a couple years away and in the very early stages.
- It's College Night tonight in the upper right field reserved with 2-for-1 tickets. Everybody was really well behaved last time.
Padres are hosting a "Salute to the Negro Leagues" luncheon today.
Kyle Blanks bobblehead is tomorrow, but while he's on the DL he is still an important part of the team. "We're proud of Kyle and he has a great future with us." Bobblehead should really be twice the size of the others.
Heath Bell wants his own bobblehead night. He's a real classy guy.
- Tom brought a sick child into the clubhouse last week and the team was really nice to him. The whole team is made up of great guys.
- Tom is spending Father's Day at the park with his kids. They are going to try and bring some of the players dads out on the field.
- "I've never seen a more exciting team." Every play matters in these games and the team is playing their hardest. "I'm just filled with pride to be part of this whole thing."
