San Diego Padres History

Just 23,000 were on hand to observer the Padres entry into the National League on April 8, 1969. The array included three players (Bill Davis, Larry Stahl, and Rafael Robles) who will fail to hit .200 that season. Pitcher Dick Selma held off the Astros and won the Padres debut, 2-1. It will take a decade previous to the team posted a delightful record, and in 1973 they roughly moved to Washington, D.C. In fact, the Topps Baseball Card Co. In fact printed cards for the '73 season with " Washington" in place of San Diego. The league help quash that thought, and the Padres stayed in SoCal.

San Diego Padres History

Padre players of note in the 1970s built-in Nate Colbert, Cito Gaston, Johnny Grubb, Dave Winfield, Ozzie Smith, Randy Jones, Gene Richards and Gaylord Perry. Jones and Perry won Cy Young awards, while Winfield was one of the most excellent outfielders in the league previous to his departure to the Yankees prior to the 1981 campaign. In a terrible move the club traded Smith to St. Louis for Garry Templeton, an exchange of shortstops. Though Templeton solidified the center for San Diego for close to a decade, Ozzie went on to a Hall of Fame caliber career for the Cardinals.

In 1984 the Padres finally broke during, winning the NL West and advancing history the stumbling Cubs to the World Series. Unfortunately they faced the Tigers, who rolled over them in five games, battering the Padre starters. Stars on that team were Steve Garvey, Graig Nettles, Terry Kennedy, Templeton, and outfielder Tony Gwynn. Gwynn was a 15-time all-star, five-time Gold Glove winner, and eight-time batting champion. It's safe to say he was the best hitter of his generation. In 1998 the team returned to the Fall Classic, again facing a formidable opponent: the New York Yankees, winners of 114 games in the regular season. As in 1984, the Padres were outclassed, this time losing four directly. That 1998 season was a victory, despite the crushing loss to New York in the Series. The Padres upset the Atlanta Braves in the NLCS, using masterful pitching and solid defense. Spearheading the offense was outfielder Steve Finley, Gwynn, and switch-hitting Ken Caminiti.

In one season the leadoff man erased Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb's names from the record books.
