San Diego Padres
Being based in (and deeply rooted) in San Diego, one of the partnerships we’re most proud of is with our hometown Major League Baseball club. For the past five years we’ve partnered with the San Diego Padres to do, what has become, our signature “Friarknocks” giveaway. For one home game each Summer, the first 25,000 fans in attendance receive a pair of Friarknocks sunglasses, and every year we introduce a new design to add to the archive. These special shades have become highly coveted by hardcore Knock fans and Padres fans because they are not available for purchase—only way to scoop them up is by coming out to the old ball game!.
Over the years we’ve built a great working relationship with our Padres and have collaborated to do other cool things throughout the ball park like creating custom sunglasses for the San Diego Friar himself, co-hosting College Nights on the upper deck, sponsoring every home run and the “Knock of the Game”, and we’ve also been known to throw out a few first pitches. With Knockaround HQ only a stone’s throw away from Petco Park, chance are we’ll also roll through for the occasional day game!
Looking to scoop up a pair of the 2017 #Friarknocks (for free)? Swing through San Diego Padres' Petco Park this Saturday, June 3rd at 1:10pm PDT, when the San Diego Padres take the field against the Colorado Rockies.
