Trevor Hoffman Retirement Links
Sunday August 21, 2011 will be remembered as a historic day in the Padres franchise. Along with 40,000 passionate Padres fans, I cheered on the ceremony at Petco Park as Trevor Hoffman‘s number was offcicially retired. The Pre-game ceremony had everything from Padres legends to a classic car. With a huge Friarhood group in attendance for an event that fans will never forget, the #51 was unveiled on top of the batters eye in center field.
I’m sure the press box was full on this momentous day, with that said, I wanted to pass along some links for Padres fans.
