We mentioned previously the Re-Creation night that our local SABR Chapter is putting on, sponsored by the Aramco Group. Several more details have been released today.
First, the fine folks at Chubby’s Food Truck will be in the Scripps Ranch Library (10301 Scripps Lake Drive, San Diego 92131) parking lot for those wanting to eat at the event. Chubby’s serves a variety of burgers, sandwiches, wraps, Mexican food, and other fare for your culinary pleasure. Their full menu can be found on their website.
Kurt Bevacqua and Steve Arlin will attend the event and are just two of the former Padres Bob Chandler will interview during the re-creation. Bevacqua, in parts of six seasons with the Padres (1979-80, 1982-85), hit .245/.331/.331 with 7 HR and 128 RBI, and played multiple positions including first base, second base, third base, left field, and right field. He is perhaps best known for his hitting during the 1984 World Series, when he went .412/.444/.882 with 2 home runs, including the 3-run shot in Game 2 that secured the only World Series Game win in Padres history.
Arlin also spent six seasons with the Padres (1969-1974), during which he went 32-62 for the club with a 4.33 ERA. Arlin came closer than any other Padres pitcher to throwing a no-hitter, when his bid on 18 July 1972 against the Phillies was broken up with two out in the ninth inning. He is the grandson of Harold Arlin, who called the first ever baseball game broadcast on radio.
Other Padre alumni scheduled to attend include:
