San Diego Padres get new Marine Corps style uniforms
A break from the norm. The San Diego Padres are changing up their uniforms that honor the Armed Forces and are going with an authentic Marine Corps camouflage.
As four Padres unveiled the club’s new, Marine Corps-inspired camouflage uniforms Tuesday at a local hotel, a voice from the rear of the room cried out: “We can’t see you.”
Clearly, the third version of the camouflage tops the Padres have worn on Sundays, Military Opening Days and special occasions since 2000 is the most authentic by far.
Which raises an interesting question:
If the new camouflage uniforms are so authentic that they blend into background from a distance, will Padres fans recognize the tribute the club is trying to pay the military by wearing these desert camouflage uniforms?
Least they aren’t going with the horrible ACU pattern we are forced to wear in the Army.
