What is Gallagher Square?

Before the 2020 season, The Park at the Park in the San Diego Padres’ Petco Park baseball stadium was rebranded as “Gallagher Square.”

Who is the “Gallagher” is Gallagher Square
Gallagher is not a WHO, it is a WHAT. Gallagher is a global insurance brokerage, risk management and consulting services firm. That’s right, you just got hit with a sponsored brand impression.

Gallagher’s connection to America’s Finest City is that they have “hundreds of clients and employees throughout the greater San Diego area.” And as of the inking of this multi-year deal, they are The SD Padres’ official insurance broker and benefits consultant.
Learn more from the PR announcement on Gallagher’s website.

Are they changing the shape to a square or is it still a rectangle
It feels like a rectangle but if you look on a map it is in fact a square. Kids should be sure to know, every square is a rectangle. But the name Gallagher’s Rectangle sounds too much like a prog rock album or a piece of prop comedy from the 1970s.
