The San Diego Padres announced today that they will host their second-annual Padres Fantasy Camp at the Peoria Sports Complex, the club’s official Spring Training facility, from January 19-24, 2020.
Participants in the 2020 Padres Fantasy Camp will spend the week getting the full big-league experience while receiving instruction on the fundamentals of hitting, fielding, pitching and baserunning from notable Padres alumni and current members of the minor league coaching staff. Alumni expected to participate include Trevor Hoffman, Randy Jones, Wally Joyner, Tony Gwynn Jr., Mark “Mud” Grant, Andy Ashby and more.
As part of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, each participant will have their own dedicated locker in the Major League clubhouse where they will be able to store their Padres duffle bag and hang their full Padres uniform, consisting of a home and away jersey, pants, socks, belt and dry fit shirt. Breakfast and lunch will be provided each day in the team cafeteria to allow participants to be properly fueled as they live out their dreams of being major leaguers. At the conclusion of the fun-filled week, all guests will be treated to a special post-camp banquet, and each participant will return home with a variety of special gifts to remember their week as a pro.
“From the moment that I arrived at the hotel in Peoria to check in and see the clubhouse, I had the biggest smile on my face,” said a 2019 Padres Fantasy Camp attendee. “The camp far exceeded any expectations I had. From the personalized gear, to just playing ball all week, to having current players and Padres alumni make me feel like a superstar, I had the best time. Thank you so much for the experience.”
The five-day, six-night camp includes hotel accommodations and is open to any fan over the age of 25. Padres members will have access to a dedicated pre-sale starting today, with registration for the general public beginning Thursday, May 2 at 10:00 a.m. A total of 48 roster spots will be available for the 2020 fantasy camp with proceeds benefitting the Padres Foundation.
