Padres lower concession prices

San Diego Padres plan to woo recession-battered fans this season by lowering prices at Petco Park concession stands, it was reported Tuesday.

Padres’ broadcaster Mark Grant said Tuesday that concession prices would drop as part of the “Padres’ stimulus package,” The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The season begins April 6 with the Padres hosting the Los Angeles Dodgers. At that time, so-called stimulus deals will include a hot dog, peanuts, popcorn, cookie and soda for $5. For an additional $5, fans can swap the soda for a draft beer.

However, the price of beer by itself will not drop much. A 20-ounce glass of premium beer, including foreign brands, will go from $9 last season to $8.50 this season while a 16-ounce serving of domestic beer will remain $6.50.

Other changes announced Tuesday include seating, with an upper reserved seat, hot dog and soda going for $12 on the weekends and an upper reserved seat with an all-you-can-eat package for $28. The latter will also be available only on weekends. The all-you-can-eat package will feature a menu of hot dogs, veggie dogs, nachos, popcorn, ice cream and soda.

The Padres are among 11 teams instituting across-the-board ticket price drops, according to the Union-Tribune. The others are the Los Angeles Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics — every California team except the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
