AAA Team Moves to Tuscon

The San Diego Padres AAA team will play their games for 2011 in Tuscon Arizona with an option to play there additional years. The Padres would like to move the team to Escondido, but for the time being, the Padres will have them play in Tuscon.

Last season, the AAA affiliate was stationed in Portland OR. The Ballpark there was converted to a soccer field and the team had to find a new area to play there games.
