Bobby Cressey plays organ for the Padres. Today he performed while wearing Dave Staton's Traveling Jersey.

Gaslamp Baller gdarklighter and I watched the game high atop Petco Park on its upper decks in the company of Bobby Cressey the Padres organist. It was the last afternoon game of the season and the last time Bobby would perform. We supported him by applauding his tunes and keeping him company and he supported us by creating a soundtrack for the game and wearing the Dave Staton Jersey.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Jersey is a Gaslamp Ball community project that will chronicle the 2012 Padres season through the lives of their greatest fans and an old jersey.

The Padres were smoked by the Dodgers so there was little to do but make videos. In this video Bobby walks us through his daily routine and performs ballpark standards such as Take Me Out To The Ballgame and Girls by the Beastie Boys.

Apologies for the sound fluxuation, we're still having problems with our microphone.
