Padres leave Tucson for El Paso after last game

TUCSON, AZ (TNN) – Professional baseball in Tucson had its last inning Thursday night.  The next time the Padres of the Pacific Coast League take the field, they'll be in El Paso.

"I'm kind of upset, don't know what else they're going to do here, you know, unfortunately this was, we were just talking, this was where everyone went every Thursday night," said Padres fan Caela Bulzing.

"Unfortunate is all I can say," said fan Tom Arbogast.  "We just can't get a crowd out here."

The Tucson Padres have been last in attendance in the Pacific Coast League, with 192,065 people in 2013.  The leader of the league is the Albuquerque Isotopes with 552,713.  The next to last team, the Tacoma Rainiers, had 291,835, which is still almost 100,000 more than the Padres.

"Well, if they leave, they don't mean anything," Arbogast said.  "I have to throw my Padres gear away, because I'm a Diamondbacks fan."

"I'm hoping some teams start coming here for Spring Training," Bulzing said.

The Padres to the Reno Aces, 1 to 2.
