Attendance is very high at Padres games especially considering how bad they are and PetCo Park was only built in 2004.Attendance *was* high from about 2004-08. You should see it now -- ghost town. Even in 2009 when they had that last day race to get a playoff spot, during the month of September that year, the place wasn't even sold out. Then when the team sucked even more in 2010 and 11, there were lots of open seats. No end in sight!
