COOK Ed Ctr students get inside tour of Petco Park

March 5th, 2012 by admin

COOK Education Center students got an "insider's" tour of Petco Park, including the broadcast booth. What a special day for special students!

On a sunny February day, seven Cook students were invited to a private tour of Petco Park – home of the San Diego Padres!

The students were led by Robin Smith, coordinator of Disabled Guest Services and Alex Montoya, the manager of Latino Affairs for the Padres.

Students had the opportunity to see areas of the park that most fans could only dream of, including being on the freshly trimmed field, behind the infamous home plate and in the sky high press box. Our students left with big smiles and a season calender for the upcoming baseball year.

A special thanks to the Padres for having us for this once in a lifetime experience, and to Donna Ahdoot (Dr. A.) for setting up this great activity.
