San Diego Padres

 
The San Diego Padres are a well known Major League Baseball team that is based in California playing for the National League Western Division. The team was founded in the year 1969. They have won the National League Pennant twice in 1984 and in 1998. Unfortunately, they have never won the World Series.
 
History of the San Diego Padres
 
The team took its present name after arriving at San Diego. Prior to this, they were known as the Pacific Coast League. In the year 1969, the franchise came under the wings of the Major League Baseball as a part of their expansion policy. The decade of the 1970s was popularly dubbed as the period of Winfield, Jones, Ozzie and Fingers. However, apart from the individual performances, the overall performance of the team was not up to the mark.
 
The year 1984 brought a fresh air of hope for the San Diego Padres. Due to their persistent efforts, they won National League West Championship and finished the season at 92-70. Some of the key players who were instrumental in achieving this feat included Garry Templeton, Alan Wiggins, Graig Nettles, Tony Gwynn and Steve Garvey. The period from 1985 to 1995 was the darkest years of the team. They were on a losing trot in every sphere of the game. However, in the year 1998, they won the National League Pennant. The years from 1999 to 2003 were again full of bad performances. At present, the San Diego Padres are working hard to create an impact in the upcoming World Series.
