Play ball? Padres Caravan rolls through Westfield North County, Escondido

Padres Caravan hits Westfield North County. Next Stop: Spring training.

Alas, 2016 has just begun and the Padres are million-to-one shots to make the National League playoffs.

A little roadblock like that certainly isn’t nearly enough to derail the Padres Caravan from rolling through Westfield North County.

Last stop before spring training begins, the Padres and fellow staff and travelers were all over the county the weekend of Feb. 11-13.

They hit the Escondido mall at 11 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 12 with several key players, including Matt Kemp, Trevor Hoffman (retired, OK), new manager Andy Green and new announcer, Don Orsillo.

Oh yeah, lest we forget, the giant Friar mascot showed his humongous face delighting and scaring the kids in the same breath.

Unless anybody out there is planning a quick jaunt to the desert, in the form of Peoria, Arizona, for spring training,that was the last chance to see the boys in blue and gold in person before they open the season April 4 against the hated Dodgers.
