Eighty-seven-year-old Myrtle Bernard, a resident of San Diego since 1961 and a long-time Padres fan, is one of the competitors in the teams current search for a 2005 season theme song.
Her fight song, Go Padres, Go, hit a home run with fans because its the only tune out of 140 submissions played on an organ.
She wrote the song four years ago for fun, but didnt record it until a few weeks ago when she saw a TV ad about the Padres song contest.
Bernard plays the melody on her Baldwin organ, while singer Cody Tegt tackles lyrics like: Go Padres, go/ Youre on a roll/ Your fans all know/ Go Padres, go.
If Bernards song is chosen the winner later this week, shell get $5,000 and a chance to play the song live before a Padres game.
