Padres to make 5 games available online

The San Diego Padres say they will make five games available

online for free to fans residing in the team’s home broadcast

territory.

The live video stream will be available exclusively on

padres.com beginning with games Aug. 18-19 at the Chicago Cubs.

Team president Tom Garfinkel says the online broadcasts will

allow fans to see games that are not currently scheduled to be

shown in the home market.

Padres fans will be required to complete a registration form to

validate their location in order to see the online broadcasts. The

stream will feature video and play-by-play from the opposing team’s

broadcast.

The other scheduled online broadcasts will be a home game Aug.

26 against Arizona and games Sept. 1 at Arizona and Sept. 15 at

Colorado.
