EVERYTHING you wanted to know about Padres baseball! BY: Isaac Baldwin
The Padres are important to me because MY dad and I have loved the Padres since I was little. I have said play ball in the opening game ceremony and my mom has sang the national anthem for the padres and Sara Palin but that’s beside the point. I chose the Padres baseball team as my power point because first of all I love baseball. Secondly, I love watching it on TV and it is very special to me.
San Diego is awarded a National League franchise during owners meetings in Chicago. Preston Gomez is named the first Padres manager. The Padres select 30 players in the expansion draft, with Ollie Brown the first choice. The Padres make their major league debut on April 8 with a 2- 1 victory over Houston in front of 23,370 fans at San Diego Stadium. The only no-hitter in San Diego Stadium history is thrown by the Pirates' Dock Ellis on June 12 as he blanks the Padres, 2-0. Clay Kirby retires the first 21 in a row on Sept. 18 before Willie McCovey homers for San Francisco's only hit in a 2-1 Padres victory. Steve Arlin hurls 8 2/3 no-hit innings against Philadelphia on July 18 before giving up a ninth inning single to Denny Doyle. On Aug. 1, Nate Colbert hits five home runs and drives in 13 runs in a doubleheader at Atlanta. The RBI total establishes a record that still stands, while the five home runs tie Stan Musial's 1954 Major League mark. Chicago's Milt Pappas no-hits the Padres on Sept. 2 in an 8-0 win at Wrigley Field.
Phil Nikko tosses a no-hitter against the Padres on Aug. 5 in Atlanta, winning Ray Kroc, founder of McDonald's, prevents the Padres from moving to Washington, D.C., by purchasing the club from C. Arnold Smith Randy Jones Randy Jones becomes the Padres' first 20-game winner with a 6-5 win over Los Angeles on Sept Randy Jones wins San Diego's first Cy Young Award after a season in which he sets club records for wins, innings pitched and complete games. Butch Metzger is NL Rookie Pitcher of the Year Gaylord Perry Roger Craig is named manager, replacing Alvin Dark. The Padres host the All-Star Game, a 7-3 NL win. Steve Garvey is named the game's MVP. Gaylord Perry earns the NL Cy Young Award, the first time a pitcher has won the honor in each league Jerry Coleman leaves the broadcast booth to become manager, replacing Roger Craig.
The Padres got accepted in 1968 and are still a team in 2012 and are almost in 4 th place. Padres are a very good team from 1968 to 2012 (Shouldn’t “the” be behind Padres?)
There is an offense and a defense. The offense is trying to hit the ball and run from 1 st to home The defense is trying to prevent that.
There was a guy name Babe Ruth and he hit a lot of home runs but one day a zombie apocalypse happened and while babe Ruth was being eaten there was no more baseball ever. The end. (Was there really a zombie apocalypse?)
