Photo Contest Winners!

Congrats to the winners of our first photo contest. Take a look at the winning submissions below.

First, our grand prize goes to Luke and Brant. Luke (left) decided to celebrate his sixth birthday by going to his first Padres game with his friend (and dad, of course).

Our first runner up is Justin, who came  to the May 19 game and got a shot with the Aztec band. I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!

And finally, our second runner up is David, who sent in this artsy shot of Luke Gregerson watching the game from the bullpen.

It’s as simple as that, folks. Come to a game, take a picture, come to another game on us. Keep an eye out for our next contest. Got an idea for a good contest? Leave a comment with your thoughts.

Pads visit Walter Reed
