• Padres Hall of Fame broadcaster Jerry Coleman turned 89 on Saturday. Manager Bud Black recorded a birthday greeting for Coleman that was scheduled to air on the Fox Sports San Diego broadcast. Several players did the same.

Coleman, a retired lieutenant colonel in the Marines, is the only Major League player to see combat duty in two wars -- World War II and the Korean War. Coleman was elected into the Padres Hall of Fame in 2001 and was a Ford C. Frick Award winner in 2006.
