New In-Game Promotion: Running Squirrel

Nearly two years after a squirrel ran throughout the San Diego Padres bullpen and bit bullpen catcher Justin Hatcher in the right thumb, a squirrel was found running on the field of Petco Park during Saturday’s game against the San Francisco Giants. This time, however, the squirrel was harmless. During the middle of the fourth, a young man in a squirrel costume faced a regularly dressed Padres fan in a race. Even though the challenger was given a commanding lead, the squirrel was incredibly quick and won the race.
