Padres to conduct Marine Corps Appreciation Day

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Padres will conduct Marine Corps Appreciation Day at Sunday's game against the Washington Nationals at Petco Park, part of the team's full season of Sunday military salutes.

A pregame ceremony in honor of the Marine Corps will include Marines from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit from Camp Pendleton, who returned last week from an eight-month deployment.

Col. Scott Campbell, the unit's commanding officer, will throw the ceremonial first pitch. Marine Band San Diego will perform the national anthem. Capt. Scott Bayer, an artillery officer, will perform "God Bless America" during the seventh inning break.

As with all Sunday games at Petco Park, the Padres will wear their Marine digital camouflage uniforms.
