July 4th - Independence Day 2023

Posted in 2023 in

Yes there is a Padres home game on Independence Day, Tuesday July 4, 2023.

The Padres face the Los Angeles Angels, an interleague regional rival of sorts. The two teams last played on September 8, 2021. San Diego Padres won the game, 8 to 5, but lost the series. Fun fact: the Padres and Angels are the only teams in California to originate from the state.
