Today, fans were allowed to walk through the San Diego Padres new stadium, Petco Park, and check out the angles, views and other attractions at the field.
I was fortunate enough to get down there and I have to say, the field is very nice. It has a great baseball feel, and you are much closer to the action that at Qualcomm. Even from the top seats you have a nearly unobstructed view of the whole field. It is relativley easy to navigate, and much smaller that the Q was, with a great view of aircraft on final for 27 at SAN.
The only drawback was there is one scoreboard in Left center which makes it hard to see from a few seats, and there are quite a bit of odd angles that block the fans' view of parts of the field.
Overall, other than acess and parking, and the angles, it isn a very nice stadium, fit for baseball and baseball only. Im glad to have it done and I cant wait for the season to start.
