San Diego Padres
The Miracle League of San Diego enjoys a tremendous partnership with the San Diego Padres that began with the San Diego Padres Foundation’s cash contributions and donation of the PA System and Electronic Scoreboard and corresponding designation of Engel Family Field as the 34th Little Padres Park. Since opening in 2007, the Padres organization has provided support annually through monetary contributions, donations of game tickets to Miracle League players and their families, sponsorship of donor relation events and more. The Swinging Friar and Pad Squad are frequent attendees at Opening Day celebrations twice a year and at other special events such as the Home Run Derby. The Padres also send many past and former players and management personnel to participate in the annual Celebrity Pitcher Day, which is now combined with Halloween Costume Day.
