San Diego Padres Details
With the NFL’s Chargers moving to Los Angeles in 2017, the Padres began the season as quite literally the only game in town—they’re now San Diego’s lone major professional sports franchise. The Padres have been a fixture in the city since 1969, when they entered Major League Baseball as one of four expansion franchises. They have five NL West division titles to their name and two NL pennants from 1984 and 1998, although neither resulted in a World Series title. Great Padres over the years have included outfielder Dave Winfield in the 1970s, closer Trevor Hoffman in the 2000s and, most iconic of all, legendary outfielder Tony Gwynn from 1982 to 2001. In 2004, the team moved into downtown’s Petco Park, a gorgeous venue known for favoring pitchers over batters.
These days, San Diego fields a youthful squad that provides plenty of hope for the future, and plenty of entertainment for the time being. The centerpiece is first baseman Wil Myers, who led the team with 28 home runs and 94 RBI in 2016. He was also one of only three players throughout the league to post 25 homers and 25 steals. Second baseman Ryan Schimpf and third baseman Yangervis Solarte join Myers in a talented infield that comprises most of the team’s offensive firepower. If you want to see something exciting, keep an eye on right fielder Hunter Renfroe. Renfroe has one of the biggest swings in the game and he likes to use it, as he’s not the type to take a lot of pitches.
