S.D. SALVAGES PART OF ITS SPORTS SOUL WITH REBIRTH OF BREITBARD HALL

By Bryce Miller, San Diego Union Tribune 
 
San Diego could have let the Breitbard Hall of Fame die, exhaling a final time before yet another piece of its history drifted into the marine layer. 
 
The Padres, and Executive Chairman Ron Fowler in particular, could have said “not our problem.” The names and tales could have succumbed to ebbing indifference, a city’s sense of place chipped out from underneath it.

HALL OF CHAMPIONS HOSTS AN AUCTION

The Hall of Champions museum was closed to the public in June of 2017 in order to complete the museum deaccession process and move the Breitbard Hall of Fame to Petco Park. The museum was closed because it was not sustainable. However, its closure will enable us to redirect funds to continue and expand all of the other Hall of Champions programs, including monthly and annual awards, community outreach initiatives, and the Breitbard Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame will soon be open at Petco Park, where visitors can experience it on game days or during Petco Park ballpark tours.
