Coronado Little League Players Welcome San Diego Padres to Bradley Field

Coronado Little League players are the newest members of the San Diego Padres Youth Baseball Program, and to celebrate Coronado’s up and coming ball players, the Padres came to Bradley Field on February 8th, with the Friar, the Pad Squad, pitcher Dale Thayer and a pizza party. The festivities began with a Home Run Derby between CLL’s AAA and Intermediate Division managers and was followed by a visit from the Padres.

The San Diego Padres are the 2015 sponsor of Coronado Little League through their Youth Baseball Program. Since 2012, the Padres have donated more than 55,000 uniforms to San Diego area youth baseball organizations.

In the 2015 season, the Padres have donated nearly 15,000 jerseys and made 30 opening day visits for area leagues. This season, Coronado Little League will sport different variations of Padres jerseys throughout the years.

Coronado Little League’s Opening Day ceremonies will take place at Bradley Field on Saturday, February 28 at 9:00 a.m.

CLL players and fans are encouraged to use #futurepadres for posts and Little League player pictures on their social media accounts. Each month from March to June the Padres will select a winner. Each winner receives 20 tickets to enjoy a suite for a Padres game with food and non-alcoholic beverages. In addition, each winner will be invited to view pre-game batting practice and take a picture in the Padres dugout.

The CLL Minors AAA Division managers beat the Intermediate division in the Home Run Derby with a final score of 15-13.
