Reef Indy, with his parents and Oma and Opa, attended his second baseball game.
The evening started with a stop at one of our favorite restaurants, the Tilted Kilt at 5:00 p.m. and ended around midnight after Yasmani Grandal singled in the winning run with two outs in the 12th inning! The San Diego Padres beat the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 in extra innings.
It was just a short walk from the Parking Lot to the Tilted Kilt. Reef Indy walked almost the entire day. We did have to take a short delay for Reef to experience the pigeons along the way.
Dad and Mom enjoying the festive atmosphere of the Tilted Kilt. The Kilt has everything from ice cold beer to a mouthwatering menu full of the pub fare. The place was packed, but our service was still attentive and fast.
Reef and his Opa enjoyed all the happenings at Petco Park.
Petco Park is an open-air ballpark in downtown San Diego, California, USA. It opened in 2004, replacing Jack Murphy/Qualcomm Stadium as the home park of Major League Baseball's San Diego Padres.
Reef Indy was able to play with the soft baseball an Usher gave him. He and Opa played with it for an hour before it accidentally fell off of the Western Metal Building Rooftop.
Reef is eager to share his cheese crackers.
Our view from our seating atop of The Western Metal Supply Co. building. This building is a hundred-year old brick structure that had been scheduled for demolition to make way for Petco Park, but was saved and incorporated into the design of the ballpark.
The building was renovated and contains the team store, private suites, a restaurant and rooftop seating. The southeast corner of the building serves as the left field foul pole, and is protected by a strip of bright yellow angle iron.

Reef Indy finally falls asleep for a much needed nap in the 5th inning.
