Wikipedia - San Diego Padres

The San Diego Padres are an American professional baseball team based in San Diego. The Padres compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the National League (NL) West Division. The team was founded as an expansion franchise in 1969. The Padres play their home games at Petco Park, which has served as the team's ballpark since 2004. The team's name, Spanish for "fathers", refers to the Spanish Franciscan friars who founded San Diego in 1769. The Padres are owned by the estate of Peter Seidler, who owned the team from 2012 until his death in 2023.

The first owner of the team was prominent San Diego businessman C. Arnholt Smith. The Padres are one of two MLB franchises in California to originate from the state. The team has won two NL pennants, in 1984 and 1998, losing in the World Series both years; they are the oldest team that has never won the World Series. As of 2023, the Padres have had 17 winning seasons in franchise history. Among the eight expansion teams of the 1960s, the Padres were the last to reach the postseason. Despite reaching the postseason four times from 2005 to 2022, the team has yet to return to the World Series.

In 1976, Randy Jones achieved the first Cy Young Award for the Padres. In the 1980s, Tony Gwynn became a major star, winning eight National League batting championships. Under manager Dick Williams, the Padres clinched their first NL pennant, losing to the Detroit Tigers in the 1984 World Series. In 1995, Kevin Towers became general manager; under his lead, Ken Caminiti became the first Padres player to win the MVP Award. The Padres achieved their second NL pennant alongside Trevor Hoffman, eventually being swept by the New York Yankees in the 1998 World Series.

From 1969 through 2023, the Padres have an overall record of 4,034–4,648–2 (.465).

History

Pacific Coast League

The Padres adopted their name from the Pacific Coast League team that arrived in San Diego in 1936. This minor league franchise won the PCL title in 1937, led by 18-year-old Ted Williams, the future Hall-of-Famer who was a native of San Diego.

Major League Baseball

In 1969, the Padres joined the ranks of Major League Baseball as one of four new expansion teams, along with the Montreal Expos (now the Washington Nationals), the Kansas City Royals, and the Seattle Pilots (now the Milwaukee Brewers). One of its earliest owners was C. Arnholt Smith, a prominent San Diego businessman and former owner of the PCL Padres whose interests included banking, tuna fishing, hotels, real estate and an airline. Despite initial excitement, the guidance of longtime baseball executives, Eddie Leishman and Buzzie Bavasi, as well as a new playing field, the team struggled; the Padres finished in last place in each of its first six seasons in the NL West, losing 100 games or more four times. One of the few bright spots on the team during the early years was first baseman and slugger Nate Colbert, an expansion draftee from the Houston Astros and still the Padres' career leader in home runs.

The team's fortunes gradually improved as they won five National League West titles and reached the World Series twice, in 1984 and in 1998, but lost both times. The Padres' main draw during the 1980s and 1990s was hall of famer Tony Gwynn, who won eight league batting titles. They moved into their current stadium, Petco Park, in 2004.

On August 20, 2020, the Padres became the first team in MLB history to hit a grand slam in four consecutive games earning the nickname, "Slam Diego Padres".

Until 2021, the Padres were the last team in MLB that had yet to throw a no-hitter. The record was broken on April 9, 2021, as Joe Musgrove accomplished the feat against the Texas Rangers, finally ending the longest no-hit drought by a team in MLB history. On September 5, 1997, Andy Ashby took a no-hitter into the ninth inning, which was previously the closest that the team had come to achieving this feat.

On November 14, 2023, Peter Seidler, who owned the Padres since 2012, died at the age of 63.

The San Diego Padres, commonly referred to as the "SD Padres," are a professional baseball team based in San Diego, California. They are a member of the National League (NL) West division in Major League Baseball (MLB). The team was established in 1969 and has since become a beloved sports franchise in the city.

The SD Padres play their home games at Petco Park, a state-of-the-art stadium located in downtown San Diego. The team's colors are navy blue, white, and sand, and their mascot is a Swinging Friar named "The Swinging Friar."

Over the years, the SD Padres have had their share of successes, including multiple playoff appearances and a National League pennant in 1984. The team has also produced several Hall of Fame players, such as Tony Gwynn and Trevor Hoffman.

The SD Padres are known for their passionate fan base, known as the "Friar Faithful," who show unwavering support for the team through thick and thin. With a talented roster and dedicated coaching staff, the SD Padres continue to strive for success and aim to bring a World Series championship to San Diego.
