San Diego Padres: 5 Best Uniforms of All Time
http://www.gaslampball.com/2012/2/7/2782609/the-best-padres-uniforms-throughout-history-as-voted-by-san-diego

The San Diego Padres take a lot of heat for their uniform fashion. Why? I have no idea. 

I think the Padres have worn some of the most gutsy and visually appealing uniforms in the MLB. Recently, ESPN ranked the jerseys of every team in every sport.

The Padres ranked 103rd out of 130. 

That, frankly, is a disgrace. I realize we don't have the historical pride of the Yankees, Cubs or Dodgers, but we have our own quirky Southern California pride. 

There has also been significant backlash against the camouflaged jerseys worn to honor the troops. These are worn during every Sunday home game when the Padres host some of America's finest. San Diego has a large military presence and honors them as such. 

Jim Caple of ESPN had a controversial quote when he ranked the Padres as having the worst uniforms in MLB:

Say this for the Padres—they're dependable. You can pick almost any time in their history and their uniform would be among the game's ugliest. Their current uniforms aren't bad at all except, of course, for the camouflage alternate tops. Are the Padres honoring the military or playing paintball? I'm sorry, but I don't think it makes me a member of the Taliban to point out you can salute our servicemen without wearing an ugly jersey.

I'm here to defend the Padres! We don't have the worst uniforms in sports, but rather, some of the best.
