Though there's no website yet, Friar Fest will be held January 27 and 28.
For the second year, FriarFest will take over PETCO Park on Jan. 27-28. Padres fans will be introduced to new manager Bud Black and can also enjoy a tour of the clubhouse and 30 interactive booths. Kids can clock the speed of their fastball in a bullpen session, run the bases and hang out in the dugout. In addition, the Padres semi-annual garage sale allows fans to purchase game-used bats and jerseys with all proceeds benefiting the Padres Foundation for Children.Unfortunately, I will not be in and instead be out as I'll be attending the National Sports Forum instead (as long as I can find somebody to fund the SDSU Case Competition Team, which may or may not happen... so maybe I will be attending Friar Fest).
I'm sure jbox and Jonny Dub are going so be sure to say hello and take plenty of pictures.
