Default Great Move By Padres


The Sox certainly have enough uniform options in their history if they wanted to do something like this.

Wow that is really cool.
I'm going away
Where you will look for me
Where I'm going you cannot come
No one's ever gonna take my life from me
I lay it down
A ghost is born

I LOVE this idea! LOVE IT!

The Padres ballpark is probably the most kid friendly park in the league as well. The have a dedicated "beach" section for kids with a giant sand area and it looks right into the outfield wall fence.

They do a great job at targeting the younger audience and family audience. It is really the only way they can build a good fan base since most of So.Cal is composed of transplanted fans.

Dealing with a major league team budget, the expense for this can't be that much and in a market like Chicago, where the northsiders tend to get the bigger share of the attention and media, this would be a great way to cultivate the youngsters attention and loyalty. We certainly have a number of uniform designs to recreate for the kids. MAYBE the gang members would quit embracing the caps and colors if little leaguers were wearing them!

I'm assuming that because the Padres initiated this themselves there will be no legal issues.
