Padres Discussion Thread: What is your favorite memory from “The Murph”?

Let’s reminisce.

Hello, everyone, and happy hump day.

As we all know, it’s a sad time for the San Diego sports community as Jack Murphy Stadium is slowly being deconstructed, piece by piece, as we speak.

The stadium wasn’t just a home for legends strewn across various San Diego professional sports franchises, it was also home to some of the greatest players to ever play their respective sports. It was the place where the great Tony Gwynn rose to the pantheon of Major League Baseball. It was also the birthplace of the “Air Coryell” offense with Dan Fouts and the quarterback hunting grounds for Hall-of-Fame linebacker and the late Junior Seau.

While I unfortunately never got the chance to experience the stadium for myself having been born in the midwest, my father — a California-native — used to regale me with stories from it’s glory days. In the end, I don’t think it was just dumb luck that as a midwestern-born adolescent I found my way into the fandom of both the Padres and the Chargers.

So for today, let us simply reminisce about your times at “The Murph”. In the comments below, feel free to share your favorites memories, stories, etc. from your time spent at the storied stadium.
