Where is John Moores, owner of the San Diego Padres?
If you didn’t blink, you could have seen him Sunday afternoon at Petco Park.
Moores actually stopped by the box of General Manager Kevin Towers during the first couple innings of the Padres rare 4-1 win over the San Francisco Giants.
Moores has hardly been seen in months. He didn’t even attend the 10-year celebration of the Padres 1998 National League championship team last month at Petco Park.
Obviously, the pending divorce with his wife, Becky, is weighing heavily on his mind. Becky even attended that 10-year festivity last month.
John Moores could very well be losing the team to Becky, who has hired a litigious divorce lawyer. Or more likely, the team could wind up in the hands of their daughter, Jennifer.
But at least it’s nice to know John Moores is still alive and kicking despite the divorce proceedings.
When – or if – we’ll see him at Petco Park again is another question.
