SD Padres Owner Sparks Heroic Comeback

4/4/2011 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It's not everyday a MULTI-MILLIONAIRE takes time from his fishing trip to help a couple of stranded common folk ... but this weekend, San Diego Padres owner Jeff Moorad came to the rescue.

Moorad was hanging out at a secluded area of Lake Miramar in San Diego yesterday when a man approached him and asked for help ... because the battery in his car had died.

We're told Moorad -- who was watching baseball on his phone at the time -- sprang into action ... and helped the stranger get his car up and running again.

Unfortunately, the good karma didn't pay off for Moorad's team yesterday -- the Pads lost to the Cardinals 2 - 0.

Well i guess thats cause not all regular folks drive a cadillac escalade. Besides he is not even doing anything except putting his hands in his pocket. Now if it was a mother with 4 kids stranded in a beat up van, then i would give him more credit.

The fella doesn't exactly look like a Caddy kinda guy. Must be Moorad's car he's hooking the jumper cable to.

i forgot that just because you have money, you automatically become an inconsiderate, callous, selfish, jerk.

guess what: rich people are human, too. the majority of wealthy persons don't act like the privleged idiots you follow around every day.

So in San Diego, I guess "common folk" drive Cadillac Escalades? WTF, TMZ? This is a really stupid, inaccurate, NON-news, NON-celebrity, NON-story.

Get some sleep or something and try again. Seriously.

He looks like I do when I'm "helping" someone with their car
Also glad a TMZ source was present in this "secluded area" to take the photo.
