Take me out to the ball game. We had great seats for today's afternoon Padres game against the Reds. This is the Picnic Terrace, row 1, right behind the home bullpen. We had the run of the row, along with 27 other people, and moved around between the bench and the swivel seats at the bar. A buffet of food and drinks were at the other end of the row. They even passed out bags of Cracker Jacks in the 5th inning, just in time for Adam Dunn's grand slam home run that put the Reds into a secure 7-0 lead.
