I mentioned briefly that we were in San Diego this summer, but since I have been recapping our trip to NJ first, I haven’t yet gotten to blog about San Diego. More posts about that trip are still in the works, but today I am sharing about the first thing we did there, which was taking a tour of Petco Park. I was only with Gabbie and Simon at the time because Zachary was at camp, but we decided he would enjoy it and that we should take a tour of Kaufman Stadium once we were all back home. Turns out, our Blue Crew memberships got the kids in to that tour for free, so we just had to pay for me! Both tours were interesting and the kids enjoyed them, as did I!
Let’s start with Petco Park. We were able to visit the opposing team’s locker room, but not the one that the Padres use. That was fine with us because we were seeing the one that the Royals use!
We walked along the side of the field.
The park was built around the Western Metal Supply Company building.
We sat in the dugout.
We checked out the bars / dining areas.
And the press box.

Kaufman Stadium isn’t in the middle of the city like Petco Park! Our tour began in the Hall of Fame, which we have seen many times before, but we like it!
Here, we weren’t allowed to step onto the field itself.

We didn’t go in the locker room here, but we could see it:

Both tours were fun and I think we’d tour more stadiums if we had the opportunity! Have you ever toured a stadium?
