Padres owner Peter Seidler dies at 63

SAN DIEGO — Peter Seidler, chairman and owner of the San Diego Padres, died Tuesday at age 63, the team confirmed.

“The Padres organization mourns the passing of our beloved Chairman and owner, Peter Seidler,” Padres CEO Erik Greupner is quoted saying in a news release.

“Today, our love and prayers encircle Peter’s family as they grieve the loss of an extraordinary husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. Peter was a kind and generous man who was devoted to his wife, children, and extended family. He also consistently exhibited heartfelt compassion for others, especially those less fortunate. His impact on the city of San Diego and the baseball world will be felt for generations. His generous spirit is now firmly embedded in the fabric of the Padres. Although he was our Chairman and owner, Peter was at his core a Padres fan. He will be dearly missed.”

I guess this explains the go for broke spending of recent years.

From TFA:
No cause of death has been announced, but the team announced in September that the the two-time cancer survivor underwent an unidentified medical procedure and was on the road to recovery.
That might indicate some succession planning was done, although it’s not clear.

Ray Kroc was their only other owner who died while he still owned the team, and that was in 1984. If tradition holds, the Padres are going to lose the next World Series.
