We finally entered the air-raid shelter. The fans are there. We just huddled together.”
“I don’t know how to thank the Padres in any way. Tatis, Manny and Miles-I don’t know how to thank them. They opened the door to let us play to ensure the safety of the fans. I don’t know anyone would do that.”
When the gunfire sounded, a Nationals fan also sat near the Padres dugout.
“I kind of forgot the time,” John Meyer told FOX 5. “Next I noticed some priests coming out of the air-raid shelter near where I was sitting. I do remember little Tatis. They ran out a little hastily, grabbed a few people from their seats, and led them into the air-raid shelter. “
