First-base side near Padres dugout

I went to the annual seat shuffle at Petco Park on Tuesday.  It’s the event where Padres season-ticket holders can see which seats have become available, and possibly switch to a better location.

It reminded me of our local real estate market:

The best locations are owned by seniors who have had them for a long time, and they’re not giving them up!

There were some decent seats available, but very few of the prime seats up close.

Old-timers discussing their future mirrored what I hear about their real estate too.  Some have a specific succession plan where, upon their death, the kids will take over the tickets, but there were others who mentioned that their kids are out-of-town, and have no interest.

Will there be a time when a load of great tickets become available?

Just like we’ve seen in real estate, probably not.

But you don’t need every senior to bail – all you need is one old couple to give up their prime spot!

Here’s a 33-second look at how few of the good seats were available:
