If you are looking for their home ground you’ll find in Petco Park situated in downtown San Diego which also hosts varied events encompassing concerts, football, golf and rugby sevens. Since their foundation in 1969 they won two NL pennants (1984 and 1998) but unfortunately came out second in both of the subsequent World Series. By the year 2015 they had clocked up 14 winning seasons in the history of their franchise.

The Padres, as well as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are the only MLB teams to be Californian by birth rather than adoption! This is because the Athletics started off in Philadelphia, moved on to Kansas City before ending up in Oakland, the Dodgers famously hailed from Brooklyn and the Giants from the Big Apple.

The name of Padres, which is Spanish for “fathers” harks back to the Spanish Franciscan friars who founded San Diego in 1769 and was originally used by a Pacific Coast League team in 1936.

The Padres became part of Major League Baseball in 1960 as one of four new expansion teams. Initially 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.

Although the Padres’ only two chances of a World Series ended in defeat, they still have had many successes and notable players. One among them would be Nate Colbert, currently the Padres All-Time Home Run Leader, and one of only two players to hit 5 Home Runs in one day. Nate spent six years with the Padres during which time hit 163 HR, and drove in 481, while batting .253. He was selected to three All-Star teams as well.

Outfielder Tony Gwynn spent all of his outstanding 20 season with the Padres and is the most iconic sports figure in San Diego history, and is one of the best hitters to play the game. In all of Tony's 19 full seasons, he never finished below .300.

Two of  Ken Caminiti’s four years with the club ended with an average above .300. It was here when Ken was in two of his three All-Star Games, three Gold Glove Awards, a Silver Slugger, and the National League Most Valuable Player. His best year was in 1996, when Ken batted .326, 40 Homers, and 130 RBI's.
