The Tucson Padres Are Giving Away the Honor of Throwing Out the Final T-Pads First Pitch of the Season

Posted By on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 10:00 AM

We're hopping on this bandwagon a bit late, but with the Tucson Padres entering their final season of being a Tucson-based team, we figure they need as much support as they can get — they deserve it, after all.

The T-Pads are offering their Facebook fans a chance to throw out the first pitch at the home opener tomorrow, April 12 at 7:05 p.m. The catch: you've got to comment your favorite memory of a T-Pads game on one of two posts for the contest, then have the greatest number of people liking your comment.

Oh, and one more thing: the contest ends at noon today.

From what it looks like, a gentleman by the name of Jason Brean is currently in the lead with 403 likes, so anyone starting now would have an uphill battle, but hey: if the Diamondbacks could beat the best closer of all time to win the World Series, then surely you drag 500+ people to click a link and get you to throw a ball, right?

Either way, AAA baseball is back in the Old Pueblo — and maybe for the final time. Head out to tomorrow's game (and every Thirsty Thursday, sponsored by Tucson Weekly!) and have some fun, folks.
