Tucson Padres: Thirsty Thursday and Olympians!

Well, the Padres might have had one the weirdest rain-outs ever yesterday when the Colorado Springs Sky Sox got stuck in Vegas, but the team has made it to Tucson for tonight's game, which starts at 7:05 p.m. at Kino Stadium.

But you can get into the ballpark as early as 6 p.m, since it also happens to be the last Thirsty Thursday of the season (co-sponsored by your friends at Tucson Weekly), so why not get out to a ballgame for some cheap drinks and plenty of fun? Details on tickets here.

Lots of other fun is on tap this weekend as the Padres wrap up their final homestand of the season, including a big giveaway on Friday night (which will now be a double-header to make up yesterday's game), fireworks on Saturday night and the final Bark in the Park on Sunday night.

As an added bonus. two local Olympians will be throwing out the first pitch. From the Padres' Tim Hagerty:


The Tucson Padres are welcoming two local Olympians from the recently concluded Summer Olympics in London to throw out ceremonial first pitches before Thursday’s game against Colorado Springs. Women’s swimmer Alyssa Anderson and Men’s swimmer Clark Burckle are both former University of Arizona swimmers who competed for the United States teams last month.
