Goodbye Portland Beavers, Hello Tucson Padres! The Portland Beavers are no more and will not be known as the Tucson Padres for the next two years. They are going to play in Tucson using the Padres name. Final arrangements for a stadium lease are bing made. The long term plan is to move the Tucson Padres to Escondido to play where they have approved plans to build a $50 million stadium. Escondido is a suburb in San Diego County and about a 40 minute drive to Downtown San Diego where the current San Diego Padres play at Petco Park. The Tucson Padres will play in the Pacific Coast League.
