Padres honor Ted Leitner …

A pregame ceremony to honor Padres broadcaster Ted Leitner just concluded here at PETCO Park, with a short speech — well, for Ted it was short! — as well as a nice introduction from his broadcast partner, Jerry Coleman.

Leitner was told he had three minutes for his speech, which prompted him to say “… three minutes? Have you met me? I can’t say hello in three minutes.”

Overall, Leitner is in his 32nd year as a San Diego broadcaster overall and 29th season working alongside Coleman. Leitner’s play-by-play credits include the NFL’s San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles, the NBA’s San Diego Clippers, the University of Oklahoma, University of Connecticut and his continued work at San Diego State.

Leitner threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Tony Gwynn (son of the Hall of Famer by the same name). Pretty neat scene tonight.

Ted you are the man!ever since I can rember you and Jerry have been the voices of the padres.in good and bad times you have been great thanks uncle Ted for your great voice.

I appreciate your enthusiasm for the game, and that you give credit to the opponents even though we know you don’t like the results. Appropriately a homer, when it is deserved, but a broadcast purist. In my book, it’s Vin, then Ted, then Ueker, then John Stirling (surprisingly since I hate the Yankees – but he gives the opponents their due.

A real pro. I hope it’s another 30 years.
