Baseball season is still a few weeks away, but Padres Fever has already swept through San Diego.
Fans swarmed the tickets booths at Petco Park Saturday to get seats for the team's 2009 season.
Nearly 25,000 tickets were sold during the first three hours. There are less than 10,000 tickets available for the Padres' home and season opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers on April 6.
Tickets are still available for every Padres home game.
