On March 30, the San Diego Padres opened their 2014 season in grand fashion.

The U.S. Navy Parachute Team, known as the "Leap Frogs," had the honor of jumping into Petco Park before the Padres' home opener this year. Thanks to a helmet camera, we are able to see the incredible adventure.

The Leap Frogs honored late Padres announcer and Marine Corps veteran Jerry Coleman, who passed away at the age of 89 in January. They flew down with a flag featuring his initials and trademark star.
