2-for-1 matinee affair at PETCO Park today
There’s been some good deals at PETCO Park this year, as outlined in our SD on the Cheap series. Perhaps the best deal, though, is the “2 for 1 Getaway Days” promotion that happens when the Padres play weekday afternoons — usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays of homestands.
Presented by Southwest Airlines and KUSI, 2-for-1 Getaway Days get you two tickets for the price of one (or half-price tickets, depending on your point of view) in four seating sections around the ballpark. The seating sections are as follows (the number is price of tickets after adjustment):
- $17 – Field Reserved (lower bowl, near the foul poles)
- $25 – Toyota Terrace Reserved (middle level, not counting behind home plate)
- $10.50 – Upper Infield Reserved (upper level, behind home plate)
- $7.50 – Upper Reserved (upper level, facing the outfield)
So if you can take a half day from work, and you’re not already heading to Del Mar for today’s Cougar II Handicap, make your way to the Downtown to watch some baseball on the cheap.
Today’s first pitch is 12:35 pm.
Here are the remaining dates where you can get the 2-for-1 deal:
- Aug. 5 — Padres v. Atlanta Braves
- Sept. 2 — Padres v. Washington Nationals
- Sept. 16 — Padres v. Arizona Diamondbacks
