Wanted to share a story with you all. Yesterday, my parents attended the Padres game and had a pretty amazing experience, all thanks to the staff... Below is the email my dad sent me last night, word for word.
Remember those seats right behind home plate (the Home Plate Club) that you always want to sit in when we get down on the field...well Mom and I sat there for Wednesday's win against St Louis! We went to a season ticket holder meeting with Tom Garfinkle before the game and afterward stayed around to ask a question...as we left one of the senior staff members (Jeremy Walls) gave us two tickets for the Home Plate Club (even escorted us down to the entrance just past the Padres clubhouse) where we enjoyed lunch, the game (row 3), chatted with Dave Winfield, got a picture with Trevor Hoffman, the works...awesome.
Now back to the real world....
Hope your week is going well.
Love, Mom & Dad
Words can't begin to describe how awesome that is. So I wanted to use this venue to extend my thanks to the team. I know some of those guys read this, including The Mentor himself from time to time. So thanks, Padres staff, for providing a retired miltary couple with one of their highlights of the year. So easy for you guys, so impactful and just incredibly cool for them.
