Heartfelt Virtual Cheers Send Padres To Playoffs
It's been quite a drought. But the San Diego Padres are at last in the National League Playoffs again.
As San Diego sportswriter Jay Paris pointed out on Monday's Midday Edition, the last time the Padres made it to the playoffs — 14-years ago — Bruce Bochy was the manager and Dave Roberts, the current Dodgers manager, was in the Padres outfield.
But there will be no tailgate parties among Padres fans or high-fives in the bleachers, as the COVID-19 pandemic has upended not just major league baseball, but most sports.
Paris talked with Midday Edition about the Padres chances against the St. Louis Cardinals as well as what is happening with Aztec football and other college sports.
