The Padres weren’t the only winners on Opening Day at Petco Park. Don May, a longtime fan sitting on the Toyota Terrace level, had brought a diamond of his own. He knelt down on one knee during the seventh-inning stretch and proposed to his girlfriend, Natalia Vargas. It was a nostalgic moment because their first date was five years ago at the Padres’ home opener in Petco Park against the Dodgers.
