Padres Little League Day


 Little League Day
2013 Little League Parade Instructions

Parade Starting Location:

7th Avenue between K Street and L Street. Participants will be staged outside the Western Metal Building and Padres representatives will be on hand for directions.

Parade Start Time:

11:30 a.m. - Teams and coaches can start lining up beginning at 10:30 a.m. Participants must be in line no later than 11:20 a.m. in order to participate in the parade.

Who Can Participate:

Only Little League players and coaches will be able to participate in the parade. Each team will be allowed two coaches. Coaches will be responsible for their team throughout the parade and until their teams are in their seats or paired back up with their parents. Due to the large number of attendees expected, we cannot include parents (other than coaches) in the parade. (There will also be a few softball teams in attendance that will be allowed to participate in the parade.)

What To Wear:

All participants (including coaches) should attend the parade dressed in their uniform and tennis shoes. (No cleats will be allowed on the warning track.)

League/Team Banners:

Team and/or League banners can be presented during the parade. Banners cannot contain any corporate or sponsor logos and must be able to be folded away during the game. Poles to hold up the banner will not be allowed.

Parade Route:

The parade will start through the Western Metal Building breezeway entering the playing field at the Left Field foul pole. The parade will make its way down the Left Field Line, around home plate, up the Right Field line, exiting the playing field at the Right field foul pole. Participants will proceed up the East Ramp of PETCO Park and exit the building through the East Village Gates at the corner of 10th Avenue and Park Boulevard. Participants must remain on the warning track at all times and will not be allowed onto the grass. In order to get the large number of participants through the parade route in a timely manner, the Padres ask that coaches keep their team moving at all times. No pictures will be allowed to be taken during the parade.

Please Note: Each parade participant should be in possession of their game ticket. Although tickets will not be scanned prior to taking part in the parade they will be required to have a game ticket to participate. The parade will end outside the gates of PETCO Park. Participants will re-enter through any gate and will need to have their ticket to be scanned upon re-entry. Coaches should be prepared to stay with their team and escort them to their seats or back to their parents after the parade.
