Lakers Ron Artest asks if San Diego has a baseball team while wearing a Padres hat

L.A. Laker Ron Artest was doing a news conference in San Diego yesterday at the Chargers media center and jokingly said he'd like to play for other San Diego professional sports teams. 

Associated Press:

"And I'm also here to say that next year I'll be trying out for the San Diego Chargers, so I look forward to that. Hopefully I can play some baseball. Is there a baseball team here?"

You're wearing the hat, he was told.

"I know I'm wearing the hat. I just love the SD. The logo looks great. I didn't realize there was a baseball team in San Diego."

The Padres are more of a fashion statement than a baseball franchise.
