Forever a Padre ♥

He threw his hands up in the air as teammates surrounded him. The sign in the outfield finally moved from #599 to #600.

Trevor Hoffman earned his 600th save last night in Milwaukee.

What can I say about Trevor? He’s one of my all-time favorite players. He’s one of the most classy players to ever step on a major league baseball field. Best of all, he’s a Padre.

I am just soooo happy for him!!! He so deserves this. He’s an incredible player and an incredible person. I love him so much and I miss him like crazy.

Though it was a very happy moment to watch him get that 600th save, it was also very sad because he wasn’t doing it in San Diego. This is his home, not Milwaukee. He doesn’t belong there. He belongs here.

But it’s reassuring to know that wherever he goes, Trevor will always, always be a Padre.

hoffman-500x-large.jpgCongrats, Trevor, on save #600. Your whole career has been absolutely amazing and you’ve created quite the legacy for youself. You’re the all-time saves leader! Great work, Trev. You’re an inspiration to many people, including myself.

I still hope that someday you’ll be able to pitch in one more game as a Padre. I miss Trevor Time. No matter what, though, you are forever a Padre. I love you Trevor.

GO TREVOR HOFFMAN!!! FOREVER A PADRE!!!!

The Padres showed a lot of class by showing the final out of Trevor’s save last night on the scoreboard at PETCO Park.

Kaybee: I wonder if he’s going to retire soon now that he’s reached this milestone. Congrats to him! (Although Mariano is better, haha).
