Medica has fun with fans entering Petco Park

Tommy Medica greets fans entering the stadium on Opening Day with a Go-Pro camera strapped to his chest, and it's awesome.

We've already seen what Tommy Medica has to offer at the plate, but yesterday he showed fans another side of him off the field. The Padres had Tommy Medica hang a go-pro camera around his neck while he and other Padres players passed out Opening Day hats to fans entering the stadium. Here's the result:

Medica is obviously a friendly guy, stopping to take selfies with Padres fans and chatting with people as they pass. But the best part is how he acts whenever Dodgers fans come through the gate. He boos people wearing Dodgers gear. He places a hat over the head of at least one fan to cover up the LA hat they're already wearing. He even offers a fan two Padres hats so she can use them to cover up the "Dodgers" script on her jersey. You can tell he had a lot of fun interacting with people and all of it just makes him even MORE endearing.

I wouldn't be surprised if he managed to turn some Dodgers fans just by being charming and flashing that smile.
