Little Padres Parks


Building clean, safe fields for youth baseball

To help celebrate the 60th anniversary of professional baseball in San Diego in 1996, the San Diego Padres baseball club began refurbishing baseball diamonds where youngsters throughout the region (including Baja California) could play ball in clean, safe settings. Through club funding, corporate, community and fan support, the Padres have dedicated 42 Little Padres Parks. Little Padres Parks have big-league landscaping, scoreboards, and signature palm trees in the outfield.

These parks are found all over San Diego County. Parks have been dedicated in honor of Jackie Robinson, San Diego native Ted Williams, Hall of Famer Dave Winfield, former Padres pitcher Matt LaChappa, and Andres Berumen, celebrating the first Tijuana native to pitch for the Padres.
