Make plans to enjoy a ballgame under beautiful September skies at one of Major League Baseball's most beautiful ballparks. Within walking distance of the Hilton Bayfront, conference attendees will have prime seats at Petco Park to watch the San Diego Padres take on the Chicago Cubs. The ABA has reserved exclusive seats in the Estrella Jalisco Landing, a special section in left field that provides the perfect combination of prime baseball viewing and a lively atmosphere. Guests will be treated to a buffet of ballpark fare and beverages, including beer. While baseballs are not included, they are known to make periodic visits to a lucky few. After the opening night reception, cross the pedestrian bridge to join us for a special evening at the ballgame!
