Another Yellow Cap

1974 San Diego Padres

The San Diego Padres came into the National League  in 1969.  McDonald's co-founder Ray Kroc purchased the team in 1974.   San Diego had a Pacific Coast League team since 1936 prior to joining the NL.

The team name "Padres" is Spanish for fathers and refers to the Spanish Franciscan friars who founded the city of San Diego.
