Are Padres' Latest Military-Inspired Alternate Jerseys Too Camouflaged?
Published January 26, 2011
MILITARY APPRECIATION: MLB.com's Corey Brock reported the Padres will sponsor a Military Appreciation Pavilion located near the 14th green at this week's PGA Tour Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines outside San Diego. The venue is "free for military members attending the tournament," and the pavilion is "open only to active duty military and their families." Spectators who wear their Padres gear to the tournament "will have access to a special Padres grandstand, located adjacent to the Military Appreciation Pavilion." The Padres last season "provided more than 67,000 discounted tickets to the local military community." Last month, the Padres' Holiday Caravan included a visit to Wounded Warriors at Naval Regional Medical Center San Diego, "where the team presented a check to the Fisher House for a portion of the proceeds raised through the sale of military logo merchandise in 2010" (MLB.com, 1/25).
