84 Padres are in ESPN's latest Nine for IX

Otto Greule Jr



Not sure if anyone has seen this, but the 1984 Padres get some unflattering run in ESPN's "Let Them Wear Towels".

The cliff notes version is this hour long documentary is about female sportswriters from the 70's to the 90's and the challenges they faced. It's really well done and told by the sports writers themselves. The directors also did "Knuckleball" which is great too.

I don't want to spoil how the 84 Padres were a part of this story, but they are in there starting around the 40 minute mark if you DVR it. What was most surprising to me was how I missed that whole story as a 12-year-old fan following them closely. I feigned illness to watch Game 1 of the NLCS. After, I thought the baseball gods spoke to me to never do that again with the thumping they took....

Anyway, a great show if you can watch a rerun of it, even see some 1984 footage and an interview with The Garv.
