We were shellshocked. Maybe it should not have come as a surprise since there had been no news about him lately since the surgery in September. But it really is a sad day since he gave so much of himself to the community and he was the first owner to really invest in the team where the sky was the limit. And for this market and what we are up against in our division, that was saying a lot!

San Diego is really in mourning. Mr. Seidler, you will always be remembered for your devotion to our community and our fans! Rest in peace and condolences to the family.

I was so sorry to hear about this. The elder Peter has now lost his wife and nephew within a few months of each other. San Diego has lost a civic hero. Even Dodger fans have lost one of our own family, even though he defected to the enemy. Exclamation

My Padres will honor Mr. Seidler all season next year with a uniform patch and other honors.

Mayor Gloria has announced that one of the entry roads to Petco Park will be renamed for Mr. Seidler. I am not sure which street it is. We should find out soon. Article from padres.com

There will be a memorial service for Peter Seidler at Petco Park on March 23.
