Padres farm system ranked #1 by MLB Pipeline

  Padres farm system ranked #1 by MLB Pipeline Today, the San Diego Padres were ranked as having the best farm system in all of Major League Baseball by MLB Pipeline. The staff, compiled of prospect analysts Jonathan Mayo, Mike Rosenbaum, and Jim Callis, rank the farm systems based on “elite-level prospect talent” as well as prospect depth. Teams are ranked by the amount of prospect points they have. According to MLB.com, “Prospect Points are determined by awarding a team 100 points for the No. 1 prospect on the Top 100 list, 99 points for No. 2 and so on, down to one point for No. 100. Points are then tallied by team.

The Padres will be extending protective netting to the end of each dugout at Petco Park for the 2018 season. As of now Major League Baseball “recommends” that teams install netting from dugout to dugout behind home plate, which is around 70 feet.

In the wake of the incident mentioned above at Yankee Stadium, the Padres have joined the Mariners and the Reds in announcing that they will extend the protective netting at Petco Park to the end of the dugouts.

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Padres have announced details of their extended netting project, which begins today at Petco Park.

Protective netting at the ballpark will be extended to the end of Section 116 in left field and Section 115 in right field, proactively surpassing the guidelines issued by Major League Baseball.  The netting will reach a maximum height of 24-feet before it tapers down along the foul lines.  It will be attached to the top of both dugouts, as well as the tops of the walls along the warning track.

“The security and well-being of our fans is our number one priority at Petco Park,” said Padres Executive Chairman Ron Fowler and General Partner Peter Seidler.  “We feel the new netting design drastically improves the safety of our patrons, while the state-of-the-art materials will have a minimal effect on the fan experience as it pertains to the view of the field and sightlines of our ballpark.”

Hedges and Villanueva homer again in Padres win

  Hedges and Villanueva homer again in Padres win Spring Training has been kind to Christian Villanueva and Austin Hedges. Villanueva and Hedges hit their third and fourth home runs of the spring respectively, leading a 20-hit Padres attack as they defeated the Royals 13-5 on Friday afternoon at Peoria Stadium.Seeking a roster spot in a crowded infield, Villanueva is currently hitting 9-16 (.563) with three home runs and 10 RBI in spring training action. Meanwhile, after tweaking his swing in the offseason, Austin Hedges is hitting 5-8 (.625) with four home runs. He has homered in each game he has played this spring.

The Padres will be extending protective netting to the end of each dugout at Petco Park for the 2018 season. As of now Major League Baseball “recommends” that teams install netting from dugout to dugout behind home plate, which is around 70 feet.

The Padres will extend netting for the 2018 season at Petco Park . While Major League Baseball has issued guidelines for protective netting , it is ultimately up to the teams to decide just how much netting to use.

During the project, all of the protective netting will be replaced with Promats Athletics 1.2 mm Field Green Ultra Cross® Knotless Dyneema® Netting, a lightweight, open mesh that is dyed green to meet MLB’s recommendation to reduce visible impact on those seated behind the netting.

Padres Members will be invited to view the new netting, along with their 2018 season ticket seat locations, during a high school baseball game between La Costa Canyon High School and Vista High School on Friday, March 23 at Petco Park.
