The player’s number is in pink underneath, the right sleeve is pink with gold detailing and the left is a foamy green with a new color Padre’s “Swinging Friar” logo patch. On the back of the shirt, the player’s name appears in gold in a standard shirt font, arching above the number in a large pink font, in the same style as the front.

Despite the multicolored design of the jerseys, the caps are all green in Seafoam style – crown, button and peak Padres’ familiar interlocking “SD” logo is on the front of the crown in pink, as is the New Era logo on the left. Batter helmets match the cap, minus the New Era logo.

On the lower half of the uniform, the trousers are white with a single pink stripe down the right pant leg and a single green stripe down the left. The belt around the waist is pink. Stance’s socks are green with a gold and pink horizontal stripe across the top, with a pink silhouette of palm trees underneath Padre’s “SD” logo and the new “San Diego” writing from the front of the shirts in white.

When the program started, the plan was for the series to run for three seasons. In subsequent conversations I’ve had with clubs, I’ve got the impression that this is now a four-year program, with all thirty MLB teams featured sometime between the 2021 and 2024 seasons. Late 2022, midway through In those four years, we have introduced fourteen teams, with sixteen remaining, suggesting that in the 2023 and 2024 seasons we are likely to see eight teams join the program each year.
