Back in the spring, members of Post 365 in Vista, Calif., decided they wanted to go to a San Diego Padres game. As house chairman, I thought this was a great idea and went into action. After making the appropriate contacts, I reserved the Picnic Terrace seating area, located directly behind the bullpens. Post 365 then opened the venue to other posts within the 22nd District. The event was held on Aug. 28; it was called San Diego Padres Salute to Veterans event at Petco Park.
It was a huge success by all accounts. Of the 28 American Legion posts currently in the 22nd District, eight were honorably represented. The food, snacks and drinks were enjoyed by all and the Padres won with a walk-off homerun.
