Padres: Brown pinstripes

I miss the Padres wearing the brown pinstripes with orange because it was legitimately their own. (Good enough for Tony Gwynn? Good enough for everyone else.) It's the same reason I miss the Royals' powder-blue road uni and the Phillies wearing maroon and sky blue.

Essentially, I miss being able to tell who's playing from across the room with the juke box blaring, because today's game, with everyone wearing red or navy blue, that ain't working for me. -- Christina Kahrl
