As you already know, tonight the Padres will honor the Mountain West Conference Tournament and regular season champion SDSU men’s basketball team for an outstanding 2011 season, in which they made it to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the first time in school history.
National Coach of the Year Steve Fisher will be joined by about 10 players from the 2010-11 team for a special pregame ceremony. Team captain D.J. Gay will throw out the Ceremonial First Pitch. The SDSU Pep Band will perform the National Anthem and will play the school’s fight song during an inning break.
As for the Padres…I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!
