Number of Padres Doubleheaders decreasing throughout history

Dustin Bradford

It's increasingly rare that Major League Baseball schedules a doubleheader. In the 70's it was a pretty common occurrence for all teams. In the 1971 season the Padres played 20 doubleheaders, the most in their franchise history for a season.

Now the Padres usually only get one under their belt on the occasion of a rainout on the road. Tomorrow the Padres will play two against the Indians in Cleveland. It'll be their first doubleheader since 2011 and only their third of the decade.
