In addition to the uniform updates, the Padres also unveiled three new logos for use in 2012. The “SD” logo has been updated to a circular mark featuring the text “San Diego Padres Baseball Club” and is to be used as the team’s primary mark.
The Padres’ new secondary logo features the Padres script under skyline imagery of PETCO Park. The new secondary mark also includes the classic “SD” along with “Est. 1969” and will be featured in a patch on the sleeve of the club’s blue and gray jerseys.
In addition, the Padres have wheeled out a revamped Swinging Friar logo for 2012. The mark makes use of the original classic Swinging Friar from the early days of Padres history, with updated colors to match the blue and white currently worn by the club. It will be featured in a patch on the sleeve of the Padres’ white jerseys.
The Padres today unveiled their updated uniforms and new logos for the 2012 season at a special event for select season ticket holders at PETCO Park. Padres President/Chief Operating Officer Tom Garfinkel was on hand along with several Padres players to make the announcement.
Included in the uniform changes for 2012, are updated home whites and road grays, along with a new blue alternate uniform featuring the Padres’ “SD” on the chest. San Diego’s military jerseys will still feature the digital camouflage pattern modeled after the U.S. Marines, but will have updated numbers and text on the back to remain consistent with the Padres’ other uniforms.
All four of the updated jerseys are currently available for sale at the Padres store and online at padres.com/shop.
