Your colors. #BrownIsBack and it’s better than ever! pic.twitter.com/ykPW6aW4R7— San Diego Padres (@Padres) November 10, 2019Since the early ’90s, San Diego has been easing blue into its uniforms until a total blue overhaul in mid-2000s. It also has dabbled in orange, yellow and other shades of brown since then.Since the team’s inception in 1969, the Padres have featured brown in some way. While it was a secondary color, it has made a return to prominence in their jerseys.The team also announced a new military-themed jersey, which it will wear on Sundays at home in 2020. Last night, we brought back the brown. Today and on every home Sunday during the season, we proudly represent our military, and here is how we will honor them for every #SDMilitary game! #BrownIsBack pic.twitter.com/49gTnTbPzP— San Diego Padres (@Padres) November 10, 2019It’s a fitting change for a truly new era of Padres baseball. While 2019 ended in a 70-92 record, the team boasts tons of young talent — Fernando Tatis Jr. and Chris Paddack, to name a couple. It also has big-ticket free agents like Eric Hosmer and Manny Machado, and it just hired Jayce Tingler to guide the ship in 2020.Some reactions from Twitter showed that these unis are a hit:Padres uniforms > everyone else pic.twitter.com/MBeTAH0FYF— Adam (@SD_Sports19) November 10, 2019Padres continue to take W’s before the season even starts 🥰 https://t.co/116izkv76w— Padres Nation (@NationPadres) November 10, 2019Today is a day most of us have waited for for years, for some more than a decade, and I have no doubt it’ll be great. Regardless of the uniform design itself, the team has FINALLY Returned to brown and that’s what really matters. When we glance at a TV we’ll know it’s the Padres— HJ Preller (@HJPreller) November 9, 2019Congratulations, San Diego, on making brown uniforms a great look. The color brown inspires many less-than-flattering mental images: UPS trucks, dirt and, worst of all, the Cleveland Browns.But the Padres are bringing the brown back, and in the process, bringing sexy back.
