San Diego Padres Franchise History:
The San Diego Padres joined the National League in 1969. The franchise struggled in their early years in Major League Baseball, finishing bottom of their division their first six seasons, and didn’t make their first MLB playoffs appearance until 1984. In their inaugural playoffs campaign they went all the way to the World Series before losing to the Detroit Tigers. The Padres didn’t return to the playoffs until 1996 but in 1998 returned to the World Series this time losing to the New York Yankees in four straight games. In the last decade the Padres have been extremely inconsistent, winning the National League West Division Title in 2005 and 2006 but finished bottom in 2008 and 2011.
San Diego Padres Offensive Star: Chase Headley
Chase Headley was selected in the second round of the 2005 MLB First-Year Player Draft by the San Diego Padres. Headley impressed in the minors and made his Major League Baseball debut in 2008. It wasn’t until 2009 that Headley started the season with the Padres and didn’t secure his regular third base position until 2010. Headley had a strong 2011 season but exploded in 2012 finishing the year as the National League RBI Champion. The switch hitter was rewarded with both the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Awards and finished fifth in National League MVP voting. Headley finally lived up to his potential in 2012 and will hoping to build on that momentum during the 2013 MLB schedule.
San Diego Padres Defensive Star: Clayton Richard
Clayton Richard was selected in the eighth round of the 2005 MLB draft by the Chicago White Sox. Richard made his MLB debut in 2008 and in 2009 was drafted to the San Diego Padres. Richard became a key part of the Padres pitching rotation in 2009 and in 2010 finished the season with a 14-9 record from thirty-three starts. After an injury plagued 2011 Richard returned to his best form in 2012 and became the clear leader of the Padres dugout. Richard will be hoping to take his game to the next level in 2013.
San Diego Padres Manager: Bud Black
Bud Black joined the Los Angeles Angels as a pitching coach in 2000 after a stellar fourteen year playing career. At the end of 2006 he was named manager of the San Diego Padres for the 2007 MLB season. Black’s tenure with the Padres started well but after average seasons in 2008 and 2009 he was under pressure to hold on to the job. Black responded by leading the Padres to a ninety win season in 2010 and was named National League Manager of the Year. After two middling seasons Black will be hoping to lead the Padres back to the heights of 2010.
