Downtown gets ready for 2022 NLCS!

Major League Baseball’s big 2022 National League Championship Series begins in a matter of hours. And the San Diego Padres have home field advantage!

Downtown San Diego has been busy getting ready for the upcoming games at Petco Park. Huge, super excited crowds will be filling the streets this evening!

I wandered around the Gaslamp Quarter and East Village this morning and saw flags and banners going up, sidewalks getting spruced up, news reporters hanging out near the ballpark, and fans in Padres hats and jerseys walking around.

Lots of video production trucks are now parked on two sides of Petco Park.

NLCS graphics were up on one of Petco Park’s big videoboards.

City workers were repainting stripes on the street near Petco Park.

Those barricade “planter boxes” near the Harbor Drive pedestrian bridge have recently been painted with orange, brown and yellow. Together they spell P A D R E S.

Nearby shops, bars and restaurants are welcoming baseball fans.

The Gaslamp Quarter has these Capture the Moment banners.

Transit buses everywhere root for our Padres!

The Donut Bar has these yummy Padres doughnuts!

I hope this place has the game on!

A television news cameraman stands by near Petco Park.

And this cool guy gave me a thumbs up!
