Except this isn't really true. People didn't really start talking about brown until 2009 or so, when they stripped the team down to be sold. And even then, yellow didn't really reach a consensus till they introduced the fauxbacks. The most popular secondary color has always come from the throwback they wore most recently.

Well I grew up in San Diego and lived there until 1990 and my extended family continues to live there. Maybe I'm in a weird circle but it seemed, and still seems, many have been calling for a return to brown ever since they switched to blue back in the 80s. Blue was always seen as a foreign color for the team.

Honestly wouldn’t be surprised if we get brown only. Like, just brown and white. Halfway at best seems like a very Padres kind of thing to do. “You wanted brown you got brown lol”

Can someone please help me figure out what we are and aren't allowed to post about when it comes to The Topic That Shall Not Be Named But Literally Has Its Own Thread And Is Also Being Talked About Here

It's not necessarily the words that cause problems, its the opinions that come along when terms get brought up.  

 

Act natural, and thats fine....cause problems, expect consequences.

Diamondbacks are installing synthetic turf at Chase Field for 2019.

 

Citing concerns for costs in maintaining a real grass field, difficulties in keeping it green and alive, consistent playing surface, costs in opening and closing the roof, air conditioning costs, complaints from fans of the stadium being too warm.

 

Don't play baseball where you can't grow grass

Brown & White alone can work if the shade of brown is a good one.

You can grow solid grass here just fine, the team just doesn’t want to pay for it.

 

The team can do what they want, just looks cheap

Petcopark.ttf doesn't work in brown, sorry. It's meant to be a "surfer" font, which is why it only really looks vaguely decent in navy/sand:

If you want a good brown Padres font, something a bit classier/more rustic would work. Examples include:

 

attachment.php?attachmentid=300130&stc=1&d=1378238190 584725.png

 

 rs=h:650,cg:true hensler2.gif

 

It shouldn't be a kitschy 1970s font or a bland mid-00s typeset.

Surfer font? Doesn't seem surfer to me in the least.

That color scheme actually looks good.  But I doubt any team would eschew a secondary color these days.

That’s the problem - gold looks amazing rendered in metallic thread and seen in the sun.  It looks drab in virtually every other circumstance.  Most of the time it’s closer to beige. 

 

Teams that play all or part of their season indoors should take this in consideration when making uniform choices.  Teams like the Brewers or the NFL’s Saints should rethink wearing dark colors indoors.

The Padres current look is navy-white without a secondary color.

 

And even they are now acknowledging that they made a mistake.

Looks sharp and more interesting than what they have now. Brown pinstripes would probably look good too. Maybe add yellow to the road and alt uniforms.

Yeah but it’s emblematic of horrible failure off and on the field.

Because they were a huge success before Navy.

One World Series appearance in Brown and one in Navy. BUT the first, and thus most loved I'd argue, was the Brown.

As shocking as this may seem, next year marks 25 years since MLB celebrated 125 years with jersey patches and those nifty hat pins. Anyone think they'll do the same for 150 next year or worry that the anniversary patches are cursed (thanks to the '94 strike)? 

 

There have been several statements from Reds' beat writers that there will be some recognition (at least by the team) of the 150th anniversary of the Red Stockings, and some speculation that it may be in the form of an alt and/or usage of the Old English style "C" currently used on the Reds' BP hats (meh - Ed.).  It would be nice to see to the league do some tribute as well, minus the labor relations nightmare that was 1994.
