The Padres pay tribute to the fire service with pre-game ceremonies that include hundreds of firefighters lining the first and third base paths while a firefighter sings the National Anthem. A special fire service tribute video is shown on the stadium’s big screen, and a young burn survivor throws out the first pitch. The Burn Institute sells hundreds of tickets to this special game, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the BI.
