Baseball is back. Don’t miss a single pitch of a San Diego Padres game. Here’s how to watch online, get tickets and get some sweet new swag.

After COVID-19 caused the entire world to change – including MLB – it’s nice to see a bit of normalcy creep back into our lives. Now, with baseball in full swing, it’s nice to have a spring and summer with the San Diego Padres on our TV screens.

2021 San Diego Padres Preview

There might not be a more hyped team in 2021 than San Diego – and it all starts with Fernando Tatis Jr., who finished fourth in the National League MVP race a season ago.

But it isn’t just Tatis that’s turning heads. Manny Machado looks healthy and comfortable again, Tommy Pham is coming back, Eric Hosmer made significant improvements at the plate last year, too.

Not to mention San Diego might have the strongest rotation in all of baseball.

Yu Darvish and Blake Snell are two of the better arms in the league – and Snell jumping from the AL to the NL will do nothing but help. When Mike Clevinger returns, you’ve now got three certifiable aces. Add in Dinelson Lamet, Chris Paddack and Joe Musgrove, and you’ve got yourself a team that’s built for October.
