Wil Myers Having a Historic Season at Home

The final Padres home stand is underway and with the Friars in a battle with the Arizona Diamondbacks to stay out of the National League West basement, San Diegans are asking why they should bother going to games.

There are two answers: to support your team, and to witness Wil Myers continue to make Petco Park history.

The Padres first baseman has already broken the Petco Park record in hits (91), home runs (18), runs batted in (56), extra-base hits (41) and runs scored (58) for a Padres player in a single season.

Outside of the Petco Park confines, the 25-year old isn’t doing bad either.

Earlier Myers became the first Padres player to ever join the 25/25/25 club in home runs, doubles and stolen bases. Even after a bit of a cool down, he’s still rolling. Myers is sitting on 28 homers, 28 doubles and 26 stolen bags so extending that record to the 30/30/30 club is a stretch but not impossible for the Padres All-Star.If he hits the 30 home run mark, he’d join former Padres Ryan Klesko, Chase Headley, Phil Nevin and Adrian Gonzalez to post 30-or-more homers and 90-or-more RBI (Myers is sitting on 91 RBI). Gonzalez accomplished that feat four times and Nevin twice.

But Myers isn’t the only one breaking out the long ball trot at Petco Park. The Padres as a team have set a new home record with 76 home runs at their home ballpark, passing the 2006 team that hit 75.

You still have a handful of chanced to watch the Swinging Friars make history at Petco Park this season. The Giants are here until Sunday and after an off day Monday, the Los Angeles Dodgers come to town Tuesday-Thursday.
