The Lake Elsinore Storm announced today that the SDSU Aztecs and USD Toreros will play a baseball game at The Diamond in Lake Elsinore on Thursday, February 25th at 6:00pm.
“I am proud to have the Lake Elsinore Storm and their beautiful ballpark involved in the inaugural Tony Gwynn Week events. The spectacular job the Storm staff did hosting the 2015 NCAA Regionals makes this venue an immediate player in the world of college baseball.” Jack Murray, Tony Gwynn Classic founder and director
Back in December, at the Padres Social Summit, I met the guys from The Kept Faith. After helping to break up their fight with the Padres And Pints crew (by pointing out that no one from Gwynntelligence was even invited) we sat around talking about all sorts of stuff. A few days later, they asked me if I would come on the podcast as a guest.
Unfortunately, I came down with a really bad cold just a few days before I was supposed to record with them, so I had to take a rain check.
This week, that rain check came due.
We talk about our predictions for the Padres this year, the All-Star Game, how the O’Fowdler Group is doing as Padres owners, and the horrible movie from 1996, The Fan.

The logo, which was designed in-house and prominently features the iconic “Storm Eyes,” draws inspiration from California culture while paying homage to the 75th year of the California League. – via Lake Elsinore Storm
Yesterday, Bill Center wrote an article on Padres.com about the changes to the retired numbers currently located on the Batter’s Eye along with changes related to the new Padres Hall of Fame. I was out doing other stuff and didn’t really have a chance to look at any of it until today.
