Hey gang, the San Diego Padres will host a memorial for legendary broadcaster Jerry Coleman at PETCO Park Saturday. That is about as much detail as fans have been given so far about the event. Also, if memory serves, it is the first major event the team is hosting since Mike Dee replaced Tom Garfinkel as team president.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the event. That got me thinking, selfishly, about some place in the park that could honor Jerry Coleman in the right way. Something that lasts for more than a day. Some place that I could visit the first time I make it to PETCO Park this season. Something that Jerry would be proud of. Sure, there’s a statue of him already, sort of pushed off to the side, but I’m thinking bigger than that.
