The San Diego Padres have had a long list of talented players that have worn their jersey throughout the years.
Players like Greg Maddux, Rickey Henderson, Ozzie Smith and Willie McCovey (just to name a few) have all spent time—whether short-lived or not—in a Padre uniform. All great players, but none played in San Diego long enough to be considered for this list.
