The First Padres

Special | 1h 25m 51s

The First Padres is the story of San Diego's first professional baseball team, the Padres of the Pacific Coast League. From their first season in 1936 at the classic wooden ballpark by the bay, Lane Field; through a decade at Westgate Park in Mission Valley; to their last year in 1968 at San Diego Stadium, the film follows the growth of a city along with the first team it could call its own.
