Before they head out to Peoria for Spring Training, the Padres are making a weekend tour of San Diego to promote their various community service activities. The Padres Caravan kicks off Friday morning at Mission Beach Park, where the team will introduce their new Toytoa-sponsored Padres Volunteer Team. That afternoon, fans will be able to grab a beer with Clint Barmes and Nick Vincent at Ballast Point's Little Italy location.
Saturday's big public event is a Pep Rally at Westfield UTC headlined by Matt Kemp and a bunch of other Padres who aren't Matt Kemp. After that, Barmes and Vincent will be joined by Dale Thayer for another round of beers at BJ's Restaurant in Hazard Center for a social hosted by the San Diego Madres.
Sunday starts with the distribution of Little League jerseys. After that the team does some border-hopping, with a large crew hanging out at the Otay Ranch Town Center while Joaquin Benoit greets fans at La Tienda de los Padres in Tijuana.
If you can't make it out to Arizona for spring training, this will be your last chance to see the Padres until FanFest on April 4th, so check out the whole caravan schedule here and join the caravan.
