    I know there are some Padre fans that couldnt make it that would like to see these things.


    This banner graced the batter's eye:

    You can see the top of the number "19" that was raised and lit up as a firework during the proceedings.

    He still does.:tup:

    As far as I'm concerned, Barry Bonds can hit 900 career home runs, but he will never even come close to Tony in terms of class and sportsmanship. Tony was, is, and always be good for baseball. I wish him every happiness as he is inducted into the Hall of Fame!!!:flag:
