First Responders

The Padres are proud to celebrate, honor and thank our First Responder community and the organizations who support them. In recognition and appreciation of San Diego's First Responders' commitment to the citizens and community, the Padres designate eight Friday night home games as First Responder appreciation Fridays, bringing well-deserved attention to the hard work and service the various departments provide.


In addition to the thousands of tickets given annually to the First Responder community, the Padres offer tickets year-round to these community heroes year-round at a 25-50% discount.
