Rain

We don’t talk about rain-o, no no no.

Most teams have already had more rainouts this season than Petco has had in its existence. The Padres average about one rainout every 6-8 years.

To be more exact, there have been a total of four rainouts at Petco Park in its history: April 4, 2006, July 19, 2015, May 7, 2017 and the last rainout at Petco Park was this season, August 20, 2023 (Hurricane Hilary).

That’s 3,394 days between the first and second rain out. During that span, the Padres played 820 consecutive days of games in the sun.

Padres Rainout Policy

If the game is ruled a “rainout,” which is to say the weather forces the game to be terminated before it becomes an official game, it will be rescheduled. An official game will not be rescheduled. A ticket to a rainout (or rained-out game) becomes a “rain check”

If the replacement game is rescheduled to a different date, its own date not tied to another scheduled game or a split doubleheader event, your tickets (rain checks) will still be valid for the new game, and you keep the same seats.

If it gets rolled into a single-ticket doubleheader, you can swap your tickets at the Advance Ticket Windows at Petco Park for any other available available game during the regular season.
