When presented with a Military ID at the Petco Park box office on any game day (excluding Opening Day), the non-transferable card entitles the holder to one Upper Reserved ticket to that day’s game. Such tickets are not eligible for upgrade. Additional tickets may be purchased at the Padres’ regular military discount.

As in years past, all active duty military personnel, reservists and veterans will continue to enjoy $6 off single-game tickets priced $13.50 or higher, with the exception of All-You-Can-Eat seats.Padres also announced today the 2012 Military Appreciation Sundays schedule (listed below).  Continuing this season, Padres players will wear Marine digital camouflage uniforms for Sunday home games as the club honors each branch of the military on dedicated appreciation days.

In addition, every home game in 2012 will feature a “Military Moment,” highlighting the accomplishments and sacrifices of San Diego’s service members and their families.”
