Editor's Note -- The San Diego Padres open their new baseball-only stadium, Petco Park, on Thursday when they host the San Francisco Giants (Qualcomm Stadium, the Padres' former home, remains the home of the NFL's San Diego Chargers). Former Padre and future Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn is the head baseball coach at San Diego State.
