Padres record on Father's Day

Stephen Dunn

Here's a request for the Gaslamp Ballmanac:

A good question considering the English translation of the team's name is the "Fathers".

To answer this question I thought I was going to have to look up the dates for each Father's Day for the last 45 years, but then realized that I could code it by querying the date of the third Sunday in June. I never really realized there was a formula to it until now, probably much to the chagrin of my own father.

The Padres have played a game on Father's Day every year except in 1981 and are playing .500 baseball with a record of 22-22. What's better than a tie on Father's Day?

UPDATE:

I just fixed the table. My calculations were thrown off by a doubleheader in 1971 and the fact that there isn't a game on every Sunday. I checked the dates this time. The Padres are 21-24 and have a .467 win percentage.
