What to wear to a Padres game

What to wear

First of all, its hot. And sunny. And any scientist outside of Florida will tell you it’s only going to get hotter. So let’s start with a few basic questions:

Hopefully that gives you a head-start on what to wear. Something not too sweaty. Speaking of heads, you’ll want a hat and sunglasses. Night games may get a little chilly. Ideally bring or wear some layers to be sure you can dial in your comfort.

Coastal Breeze

Aside from those standard-issue 72-and-sunny San Diego bluebirds, the weather can vary during games, especially near the water.

Speaking of what to bring, here’s a guide of what you can and cannot bring to Petco Park. Read it. Know it. You can bring suntan lotion. You can bring water.

Go Casual Or Go ‘Home’

San Diego is a pretty laid-back town. In fact it’s as casual as it gets. So if unsure what to wear, err on the side of comfort. After the game, all but the most fancy places downtown will let you in with a cap, shorts, and even a little mustard on your shirt.

Other Team’s Colors

While its always best to support the home team, it’s a fact that San Diego is comprised largely of out-of-towners and transplants, as well as being one of the top vacation destinations in the country. So its not uncommon to see the colors of the visiting team well-represented.

This has shifted greatly in the past few years now that the Padres are good. If you do choose to wear an out-of-town jersey, you might be subjected to a little friendly heckling but certainly no cause for concern. Just stay sober and be prepared to hang your head in shame on occasions when the Padres triumph. (Which, with a winning record, has now become the statistical probability.)
