This is interesting to maybe three other people, but you'll have that sometimes. I was over at Baseball Reference checking out all the players who have worn 39, because that's just the sort of thing I do, and the list of 39ers seemed a lot longer than all the other ones. I checked, and 39 is indeed the most frequently issued Padres uniform number. 33 Padres have worn 39 through the years, edging out the 30 who have worn 8.

- Frieri is the team's all-time leader in games played wearing 39, with 103. Florie is second with 95, and Cunnane rounds out the top three with 81.
- Outfielder Jim Williams, first baseman Eddie Miller, catcher George Williams, and infielder Wilson Valdez are the only non-pitchers to wear 39 for the Padres.
