San Diego Padres Unveils New, “Vivid” City Connect Uniform – SportsLogos.Net News

Two cities, two cultures, two countries and one Major League Baseball team.

The San Diego Padres celebrate the friendship between San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico, with their brand new colorful vibrant City Connect uniforms unveiled this morning by the Southern California ball club.

The pink, green and yellow uniforms are “inspired by the vibrant landscapes in the communities of San Diego and Baja California,” the Padres press release reads, “from the scenic views along the shoreline to the white foam of the ocean and the beautiful pink and yellow sunsets.”

Over the white chest is written “SAN DIEGO” in a split pink and green lettering with white trim and gold drop shadows. The lettering style is inspired by weathered Southern California beach signs.

The player number below is in pink, the right sleeve is pink with gold trim and the left is sea foam green with a recolored Padres “Swinging Friar” logo patch. On the back of the jersey, the player’s name appears in gold in a standard jersey font domed above the number in a large pink font that matches the same style as on the front.

Despite the multicolored design of the jerseys, the caps are all that sea foam-style green – crown, button and visor, the Padres’ familiar interlocking “SD” logo is on the front of the crown in pink, as is the New Era logo on the left. Battle helmets match the cap, minus the New Era logo.

“The bold colors and decorative details of the uniform depict the radiant artwork that is prominent in our shared culture,” says de Padres. “The Padres are proud of our bi-national fan base and the region we all call home… Every day thousands travel between San Diego and Tijuana to live and work – and the result is a city like no other, with some of the most passionate baseball fans on both sides of the border.”

The pants go to the bottom half of the uniform and are white with a single pink stripe down the right leg and a single green stripe on the left. The belt is pink around the waist. The socks from Stance are green with a gold and pink horizontal stripe at the top, underneath a pink silhouette of palm trees, the ‘SD’ logo for parents and the new “San Diego” script from the front of the jerseys in white.

The San Diego-Tijuana region is currently home to more than five million people, the second most in an urban area shared by the United States and another country. More than 75 million people entered the United States in 2019 through the region’s San Ysidro/El Chaparral border crossing, the busiest border crossing in the world.

The Padres, the seventh and final team slated to unveil their Nike MLB City Connect uniform in 2022, will debut their new look on the ball diamond just a week from today, Friday, July 8, at home to the San Francisco Giants† After that game, the Padres will wear their new pink, green, gold and white clothes for every home game on Friday for the rest of the season.

The Nike MLB City Connect Series is “a celebration of the unique personality, traditions and values ​​that unite the fans of every club.” First introduced in April 2021, the program aims to “energise old fans and bring new ones into the game.” Each team’s uniform design has been developed with an emphasis on honoring “the storied history of their club” while also “expanding the boundaries of what a baseball uniform can be.”

With the unveiling of the Padres uniform, City Connect’s 2022 release calendar comes to an end. San Diego is following the Washington NationalsHouston AstrosKansas City RoyalsColorado RockiesLos Angeles Angelsand Milwaukee Brewers to release their new look this season.

When the program started, the plan was to run the series over three seasons, in subsequent conversations I’ve had with clubs since I’m getting the impression it’s now going to be a four-year program with all 30 MLB teams revealing somewhere between the 2021 and 2024 seasons. At the end of 2022, halfway through that four-year period, we’ve seen fourteen teams unveiled with sixteen remaining, suggesting we may have eight teams per year on the schedule in the 2023 and 2024 seasons will see participate.
