Baby born during Padres game at Petco Park
The Padres gained a new fan Thursday night when a woman gave birth to a child at Petco Park during a game against the Giants.
We welcomed a baby boy to the world in Palm Court Plaza earlier this evening. First baby to be born at Petco Park! 👶— Petco Park (@PetcoPark) September 25, 2015
The woman was unable to make it to the hospital, so she had to settle for the Palm Court Plaza in the San Diego ballpark, which is a considerably less comfortable place to have a baby.
Loving that “Born to be Wild” is playing while Petco announced that a baby was born in the Palm Court Plaza today.— Beth Maiman (@bethamaiman) September 25, 2015
Now I feel so lonely. A baby was born in Petco Park before a no hitter was thrown. This franchise is really weird.— Padres No Hitter ⚾️ (@PadresNoHitter) September 25, 2015
The team did not announce the name of the newborn, but let's just pretend the parents named the child after Tony Gwynn or Trevor Hoffman.
