The San Diego Padres seem like a fun-loving group.
We caught a glimpse of this last season during their deep playoff run, and that has been confirmed so far in 2023.
During their brief time in Mexico City as part of the MLB international calendar, the Padres pulled out several unique celebrations after wins.
Apparently, they have extended that into the United States and were spotted with some big celebrations in their home of Petco Park.
Check out the latest in a tweet from the official Padres account:

There’s nothing like a Piñata Party at Petco!
Of course, the man of the hour was Ha-Seong Kim, who went 2-for-4 with two runs scored, three RBI, and a home run in Monday’s 8-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
Kim was spotted hitting the piñata and dancing to the turned-up music.
Fernando Tatis Jr., who also appears in the video, played his first game at home since the 2021 season.
He had three hits as the leadoff batter and was cheered by fans upon returning from his steroid suspension.
The 16-14 Padres are still in third place in the NL West division, but they have won three consecutive games and seven of their last 10 overall.
San Diego seems to be peaking at the right time while apparently having a lot of fun during and after their games.
The Padres will have a tough time replicating last year’s success, but they are more than prepared to give it a go.
They just got Tatis back while adding key bats like Xander Bogaerts and Nelson Cruz to the mix ahead of the 2023 season.
The players, fans, and the whole city are hoping they can keep the celebration going through the fall.NEXT: Fernando Tatis Jr. Got A Warm Welcome Back In San Diego
