The El Paso Chihuahuas,the AAA farm team of the San Diego Padres, the team with arguably one of the worst logos in Minor League Baseball (I know, I know, it’s a matter of taste), have announced that the team will wear brown-yellow jerseys Padres throwback jerseys on May 7.
Throwback because the Padres wore this kind of jerseys in the 1970s.
After the game, the jerseys will be auctioned for charity. The charitable organization that benefits from this auction is Mike Dee’s Big Adventure which offers children with disabilities a trip of a lifetime to San Antonio, Texas. The trip allows the selected children the opportunity to learn lifeskills and independent living by stepping out of their everyday life and having an unforgettable experience.Mike Dee himself is visiually impaired.
The lettering on the jersey is in the style that the Padres used in the 70s.
Only the EP logo on the cap will be in the usual script that the Padres use.
Mike Dee’s Big Adventure exists about eight years and has been a partner of the Chihuahuas since the inaugural season.
The Padres have been the only club in baseball that has used brown as a regular color of the uniform. In the 1980s and early 1990s the team wore pinstripe unis with a brown orange scipt and brown caps with the current SD logo in orange.
