Union-Tribune backs the brown

Kevin Acee and Annie Heilbrunn want the Padres in their proper colors.

MLB: San Francisco Giants at San Diego Padres Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

At the beginning of March, I took an early morning trip down to Petco Park to meet up with the Union-Tribune’s Annie Heilbrunn to talk about a subject near and dear to my heart: Brown uniforms. The position of Gaslamp Ball has long been that the Padres should wear brown, and we made that exceedingly clear in 2015 when the site switched to classic Friars colors. That dovetailed perfectly with Annie’s latest project alongside Kevin Acee, a video and op-ed one-two punch for the team’s ownership group.

It’s a fantastic piece of work by the pair of reporters. They spoke to Bring Back the Brown’s Jordan Stark and showcased John Brubaker, whose brilliant brown uniform designs we’ve raved about before. My handsome face appears in the video as well, alongside screencaps of this very website and some other great fan-designs, including one from Gaslamp Baller Tony Losoya. Go check it out; you’ll be glad you did.
