SAN DIEGO - Kevin MacDonald, a Fallbrook resident, has made it to the Top 50 candidate pool out of 800 applicants who have auditioned hoping to be Petco Park’s next public address announcer.

The Top 50 includes 45 men and five women from all over San Diego County and Southern California, and even across the United States, with candidates from as far away as Texas, Ohio, Georgia and New Hampshire.

"The diversity of our Top 50 is a reflection of the great diversity of San Diego," said Padres SVP/Chief Marketing Officer Wayne Partello. "We’re taking this search very seriously because this individual will be the voice of Petco Park."

Each of the Top 50 candidates will have the opportunity to announce at least one batter over the course of two exhibition games against the Cleveland Indians at the University of San Diego on March 28 and March 29.

The Padres will narrow the field to the Top 30 prior to the start of the regular season on Sun., March 30.
