(Padres Press Release) Fans who pre-register for the free event get early access and the chance to win exclusive experiences

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres today announced 2012 single-game tickets will be on sale at FanFest presented by Bloomberg Sports on Saturday, February 11, 2012. The annual daylong event at Petco Park is free and open to the public.

Single-game tickets for the 2012 season will go on sale the day of FanFest beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Petco Park box office, online at www.padres.com and by phone at 619.795.5555. Tickets will also be on sale at three locations inside the ballpark during FanFest, beginning at 8:30 a.m. This will be the first opportunity for fans to secure tickets for the season’s most in-demand games, including Opening Day, interleague play against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and Texas Rangers, and matchups against NL West rivals like the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. Visit www.padres.com for the complete 2012 schedule, including game times (subject to change).

Gates open to the general public for FanFest at 10:00 a.m. Padres Season Ticket Holders receive exclusive early access from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Season Ticket Holders will be sent printable early entry passes via email.

Fans who are not Season Ticket Holders can pre-register at no cost at www.padres.com/fanfest for a special pass allowing them to enter at 9:30 a.m. In addition to receiving an early entry pass, fans who pre-register online will be entered to win exclusive experiences. Those experiences include a spot in a special autograph session with Padres legend Trevor Hoffman, and a chance to participate in hitting and pitching clinics (for kids 14 and under) with Padres players. Padres Season Ticket Holders will automatically be entered to win these experiences.

FanFest presented by Bloomberg Sports will run until 5:00 p.m. Free parking will be provided in four locations: the three surface lots along Imperial Avenue (southeast side of Petco Park) and the Padres Parkade garage (10th Ave at J St).

Padres players and alumni, broadcasters and members of the front office will be in attendance. Fans will have the opportunity to get autographs, tour the clubhouse, pitch in the bullpen, run the bases and catch fly balls in the outfield.

In addition, the Padres Foundation will host its annual Garage Sale. This year, the Garage Sale will have an expanded format with a new location: on the field. Fans will have the opportunity to purchase rare, one-of-a-kind Padres items, including game-used jerseys and batting helmets, with proceeds going to the Padres Foundation.
