Padres Batting Practice Pregame Schedule


Posted in 2022 in


For an extra treat, come early and watch the San Diego Padres pre-game warm-ups and batting practice before the game at Petco Park.
Batting practice starts approximately 2-3 hours before the first pitch. The Padres take an hour and then the visiting team gets 45 minutes. Then each team engages in 10 minutes of pregame infield warm-ups. The routines end 30 minutes prior to the game’s scheduled start.

For example, on a 1:10 day game, the home team San Diego Padres would begin practice at 10:30am (and the visitors at 11:35am). A 5:40 game would have the Padres take the field for early batting practice at 2:45pm. And for a 6:40 start, the Padres being batting practice at 3:45pm (Visiting team at 4:50pm).

Note: On Sunday home games, the Padres usually do not participate in batting practice.
