Until 2010, the San Diego Padres wore a sand-colored road jersey with pinstripes. That shade of uniform was changed to grey in 2011 to keep the original aesthetic. It was officially announced in January 2019 that the original brown and gold color scheme would be restored for the 2020 season.
In addition to the original brown and gold colors, the Padres have added the “Ray Kroc” initials to their logo. They also support Play Ball, an initiative to raise awareness of breast cancer, prostate cancer and stroke. Game tapes are also sent to deployed Navy ships.
The Padres have been known to have some very exciting young talent. One of their most notable talents is slugger Nate Colbert. He has hit over 150 home runs in his career. Colbert was an expansion draftee from the Houston Astros. He hit 38 home runs in his first season and drove in over 13 runs in a doubleheader. Colbert has continued to lead the Padres in home runs.
The Padres lost to the Detroit Tigers in the World Series in 1984. Four Padres starters won in double figures. That year, they finished fifth in the NL West. The following year, they finished in the middle of the NL West pack.
The Padres finished last in the NL Western Division every year from 1969 through 1990. They were the only team in California without a World Series title. The Padres finished last in 1993 and 1994.
