11,000 Future Friars
As was announced last November, the Padres will be outfitting over 11,000 youth baseball players with Padres jerseys for their 2012 season.
Players from the four San Diego Little League districts closest to Petco Park, representing ages 4-12, will wear authentic Majestic Padres button-down jerseys and corresponding caps, thanks to the efforts of the Padres and the Padres Foundation.
Selected by the teams, the youth uniforms represent 20 different styles from Padres history, dating from the Pacific Coast League days all the way through the club’s updated 2012 look.
With the Little League season quickly approaching, the uniforms are beginning to arrive at Petco Park. Staff members have been working hard to sort through the mountains of boxes that have arrived, preparing for distribution over the next month.
