“It’s an absolute honor for our Padres leadership to provide me with this opportunity. We have a dynamite staff and it’s our job to develop players and win games, but we can only do that with the support of the fans in this Lake Elsinore community. We look forward to meeting the fans, serving in the community, and developing players in a way that helps us produce a quality level of on-field performance. Go Storm and Go Padres.”
