Quick outs celebrated in San Diego
But the Petco Park faithful don't have time to spend waiting around for whiffs. Since Greg Maddux's tour with the Padres in 2007-08, one section of Padres fans has hung giant Q's for "Quick Outs" -- those that require three or fewer pitches.
Their slogan: "We eschew the 'K,' they take all day. Efficient outs, is what we're about."
