The best and worst dates in Padres history

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

One day magical, the other cursed.

May 31st

The Padres own opposing baseball teams on May 31st. They win 71.43% of their games on that date. This isn't a small sample size either. Out of the Padres' 43 seasons in the Major Leagues they've played on May 31st every year except 2012.

The Padres highest winning percentage is actually on March 31st with 75%, but they've only played 4 games on that particular date so ignore it for now. After May 31st the next highest winning percentage is 66.67%, no other date is really even that close.

What makes the last day of May so magical? I have no idea. Anyone have any thoughts?

April 19th

The one date that the Padres don't stand a chance is April 19th. They only win 27.03% of their games. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason for it. The Padres are just simply cursed on that day, probably by a witch. Don't believe in witches? Well it's right there in the stats, see for yourself.

By Winning % and by Date

I put these two tables side by side. The tables are the same but the one on the left is sorted by Winning % and the one the right is sorted by the Date. You can look up your birthdays or something.
