Padres organist enjoys league's most scenic stage

Could there be a better job than Bobby Cressey's?

A lifelong Padres fan, Cressey first parlayed his keyboard skills into a gig as Petco Park's official organist three seasons ago.

Set up under San Diego's perpetually blue skies, he tickles the ivories for fellow Padres fans in attendance, even taking song requests via Twitter.

"It's simultaneously nerve-wracking but a whole lot of fun," he said. "And it's actually more a whole lot of fun than it is nerve-wracking."
