The date was September 28th, 2003, the last time the Padres would play in Qualcomm Stadium. We scored some tickets in the first row on the first base line. I thought I'd share some of Jonny Dub's pictures from that day.

I don't remember too much about the game, I remember all the festivities though. Here's the Ducksnorts' post from that day to refresh your own memory. Apparently Jake Peavy pitched.  A ton of Padres players from our history showed up and took their place on the field wearing their jerseys. Ken Caminiti got huge cheers. Tony Gwynn threw out the last pitch to Bruce Bochy. Mike Darr tragically died during spring training and Gary Matthews Jr. and Phil Nevin carried his son off the field on their shoulders. Ah memories!
