Late last night, the San Diego Padres gave 3 fans (including our own Sac Bunt Chris OMG!!!) the opportunity to release some of the promotional items being given away during the 2016 season.

And then things went radio silent.
Until this afternoon when the Padres released the whole Baseball Night in San Diego schedule.

A couple quick notes on this.
-This is leaps and bounds better than last years schedule, and it’s not even complete yet
-It appears that the Padres will be wearing the ’90’s uniform for their throwback this season.
-I kind of want to make sweet love to that April 16th hat.
-Our good buddies from Knockaround will be returning with some newly designed giveaways on June 17th. This is my favorite giveaway every year by a landslide and somehow they get better every season.
-The Padres Hall of Fame book intrigues me. I’ve been rallying for the Hall of Fame since I started writing about the Padres back in 2007. With the Hall of Fame coming this season and the brown inching closer and closer to world domination, I fear that I will no longer have anything to complain about when it comes to off the field stuff. I’m….scared.
