The San Diego Padres joined the MLB in 1996 as one of the expansion teams. There were three other teams in the league and they were - Seattle Pilots, Montreal Expos and Kansas City Royals. The owner of the league is a famous businessman of the city, C. Amholt Smith, who is also the former owner of PCL Padres. The team had to struggle a lot and this was only possible with the executives of baseball. They used to finish in the last place in the NL West for the first 6 seasons. During their early years, they were just surviving. There were only a few good players in the team who had pushed the team to perform.

With time, the luck of the San Diego Padres started to get better. This was evident when they won five NL West championship titles. They even reached the World Series twice with their efforts but unfortunately they lost each time. The main player who led the team during the 80s and 90s was Tony Gwym.
