“To our loyal and passionate Padre fans, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your amazing support this season. Your love for the Padres and our players is both motivating and humbling. We have the best fans in baseball.
“I want to share a brief personal update. Last month, I underwent a medical procedure and am now on the road to recovery. I am grateful for the dedicated medical care that I have received and the loving support of my family. Although I can’t be with you at the ballpark for our remaining games this season, I am watching them all, and I look forward to making some noise together again in 2024 and celebrating the 20th anniversary of our beautiful ballpark.”
