You and the love of your life can’t get enough of baseball season. You are crazy about the San Diego Padres and have spent many sunny days cheering on your team and enjoying gourmet tacos and local microbrews. If you’re ready to pop the question, what better place than at Petco Park, home of your beloved Padres?
Here are a few ideas for planning your romantic proposal at Petco Park:
Take an Early Bird Game Day Tour
Go behind the scenes and get an insider’s look at the ballpark. Sign up in advance for an Early Bird Tour, which takes place before every game except Opening Day, Sundays and 12:35 p.m. weekday games. You will explore the press box, the Western Metal Supply Company Building, the view from the first row and maybe even get an exclusive peek at batting practice. Find a spot with a great view of the park and propose with a diamond engagement ring or matching wedding bands.
Create a Scoreboard Surprise
Reserve your spot early and display your proposal message on the right field scoreboard. It will appear sometime between the middle of the third inning and the end of the sixth inning, so get ready for your big moment and make sure your sweetheart is paying attention. A scoreboard message costs $55, contains up to 120 characters and must be reserved 24 to 48 hours in advance.
Get a Good Spot
Not sure how you want to propose at Petco Park? Splurge on a couple of good seats in the Field Box VIP or Premier Club section, and get close to the action. Take advantage of an exciting moment in the game - such as a home run or a stolen base - to celebrate with your romantic proposal.
