First Responders

The Padres are proud to celebrate, honor and thank our First Responder community and the organizations who support them. In recognition and appreciation of San Diego's First Responders' commitment to the citizens and community, the Padres have designated five Tuesday night home games as First Responder Appreciation Tuesdays, bringing well-deserved attention to the hard work and service the various departments provide.

First Responder Appreciation Tuesdays are dedicated to all first responder departments throughout the City and County of San Diego, including the San Diego Police Department and other county police departments, San Diego County Sheriff's Department, San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, California Highway Patrol, U.S. Border Patrol, Red Cross, FBI, DEA and other organizations on the front line of service to our community.

Tickets

In addition to the thousands of tickets given annually to the First Responder community, the Padres offer tickets year-round to these community heroes year-round at a 10-25% discount.
