This Saturday, April 4th, the Padres will host their annual FanFest at Petco Park. There will be the usual garage sale, catch in the outfield, interactive forums and at 2:00PM the Padres will take on the Diablos Rojos del Mexico in an exhibition game that will be on Fox Sports San Diego.
At some point during that game, Jeff Cirillo connoisseur Brady of Lobshots, Robot Umpire overlord Dex of Gaslamp Ball, and the dashingly handsome Rick from RJ’s Fro, will “take over” the booth alongside Fox Sports San Diego’s Mike Pomeranz.
San Diego – FOX Sports San Diego (FSSD) will return to Petco Park on Saturday, April 4th to produce the San Diego Padres vs. Mexico City Red Devils game. Coverage begins with the first Padres Live pre-game show of the season at 1:00 PM PST.
On Saturday, FSSD will debut its new set location inside of Petco Park. The 2015 location will be utilized for both pre- and post-game coverage throughout the season. Ownership group investor and owner of the Mexico City Red Devils, Alfredo Harp Helú, is set to be interviewed prior to first pitch during Padres Live.
In addition, FSSD announced today the return of “The Bloggers Take Over”, a special segment that will be added to Saturday’s Spring Training telecast in which three representatives of various San Diego Padres blogs will “take over” as broadcasters during a portion of the game. Padres Live host Mike Pomeranz will facilitate discussion from the fans’ perspective on topics relating to the team’s upcoming season.
The following are the bloggers participating:
