Photo Day 2015: Padres and Puppies

Padres Photo Day was in full swing this morning in Peoria. All the players out at Spring Training took their turns in front of the camera earlier today, and had some fun in between takes as well.

Photo Day always gets me really excited for the season because I know all the pictures taken will be used in upcoming ads and promos and Gaslamp Ball game threads! Plus all the players always seem to have a great time with it, and these days with all the access fans have to the team on social media, we get such an awesome behind-the-scenes look at all the action.

Thankfully the weather didn't rain on the Photo Day parade and the boys were able to stay dry for their pictures.

"Twitter Mirror" was also a thing at Photo Day this year.

The Padres took requests for players on Twitter and had the guys pose in front of the mirror and then sign their pictures. Some of them took this as an opportunity to show off their creativity and artistic abilities, and others just had fun goofing around.

Padres & Pups!

And this year there were some extra special guests from San Diego's Helen Woodward Animal Center who got to join in on the Photo Day fun while helping promote animal adoption.

They brought puppies to photo day!!!!!!!

The photos will be used for a giveaway at a game this year, so we can stare at Padres & Pups all season long.

What a fun morning! And now that it's over... BACK TO WORK, PADRES!
