Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - On Wednesday, the Padres and Mercury Insurance joined forces and hosted a packing party for the troops.

Players, employees and volunteers helped put together 1,000 baseball-themed care packages for troops overseas.

Each package was filled with snacks, a Padres cap, and other items to make the away from home a little easier.

"You know, it's great to give back to the military. You know, they're out there fighting for our country on a daily basis so, you know, any little thing helps," said Tyson Ross. 

The packages will be sent to marines and sailors of the first Marine Expeditionary Force from Camp Pendleton.
