After opening your Padres Christmas gifts, get your Padres fix.

In a stroke of genius to counter the annual “A Christmas Story” marathon on another network, Fox Sports San Diego just announced that they will be running marathons of a few of their original shows on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

A couple of the programs may be of interest to Padres fans.

Cup of Coffee with Dick Enberg

December 24th, 7:30pm – 11:30pm
December 25th, 9:30am – 1:30pm

Hall of Fame broadcaster Dick Enberg sits down over a cup of coffee with Padres players and coaches to find out more about their lives off the field in this interview-style show. Featured guests include Andrew Cashner, Jedd Gyorko, Chase Headley, Yonder Alonso, Huston Street, Cameron Maybin, Josh Byrnes, and Bud Black.

Along with the Josh Byrnes episode where Byrnes doesn’t drink his coffee, you can also see Andrew Cashner tell Dick that he would like to hunt Bigfoot or Huston Street play guitar. There will be eight episodes shown in total.

Padres Live Instructionals

December 24th, 11:30pm – 1:30am

Padres Live hosts Mike Pomeranz and Mark Sweeney take viewers through a half-hour of in-depth, on-field instruction. Instructional topics include hitting, fielding, pitching and base running.

A compilation of the Instructionals segments from the Padres Live pregame shows. I can think of a couple of Padres players who need to watch the bunting segment. Not that Bud Black ever calls for the bunt.

Padres Prospects 2013: Dominican Baseball Academy

December 24th, 7:00pm – 7:30pm
December 25th, 1:30pm – 2:00pm

If you didn’t catch this when it first aired a couple of weeks ago, now is your chance. It’s a glance at how and what the Padres are doing down in the Dominican Republic.

Along with these Padres-centric shows, Fox Sports San Diego will also show blocks of #SDLive, Stable Wars, and Playing Through with John Weisbarth.

    Yeah, but what reruns and infomercials will be airing on Channel 4 SD?

    • A marathon of the unaired Channel 4 SD anthology, “Corky’s Pest Control Presents…”

      • VM David

        Still better than the Scott Kaplan stuff FSSD is airing.

      • Still haven’t watched more than 5 seconds of that.

  • The Abbot Costello

    FINALLY! Something ToDo On Xmas!

  • The Dominican Academy program looks cool. How is it only a 1/2 hour?

      They don’t want to give away the training secrets. I heard rumors the Padres hired a choreographer to devise dancing routines for the infielders to teach proper timing and footwork, and they made fielding instruction films in 3-D for greater realism. Obviously, they don’t want those training secrets to get copied.

      • Right. What he said.
        It’s just a glance. Basically the same as a video they’d show visitors at museum.

    Anyone know if they posted the Dominican Republic show online? Don’t live in SD and would love to check it out! Thanks!

    • I can’t find it. But there are plenty of segment clips from #SDLive available! #fartnoise
