Padres Drop Perfect Hype Video to Unveil New City Connect Jerseys

The video starts out with a trio of stars from the Padres (third baseman Manny Machado, shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. & pitcher Joe Musgrove) cruising down the San Diego streets in shiny bright cars. It then pans to city legend and pro skateboarder Tony Hawk, who explains story behind the design.
The theme is based around the idea of "Two cities, Two cultures, One home team" as the Padres celebrate San Diego's friendship with Tijuana, Mexico. The vibrant colors featured on the sleeves and hats represent the nearby ocean's white foam as well as the region's stunning pink/yellow sunsets.
There's not a single detail without a reason here. The lettering of San Diego across the chest is inspired by weathered beach signs and the "swinging friar" logo patch points to the team's history. These uniforms will be worn during Friday night home games moving forward, starting on July 8.
The Padres were the seventh and final MLB team to release their city connect jerseys in 2022 and anyone looking to buy merchandise should head to the team's New Era store at Petco Park. For now, San Diego has odds set at +1300 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
