The first post of the Prototype Uniforms series is for the San Diego Padres. The jersey is from 1999, and is navy with white and sand accent colors. It features a new San Diego wordmark, which was eventually used on their road jerseys, still worn today. The jersey also has an iteresting alternate logo on the sleeve, a P with a palm tree inside. The only part of this jersey that was actually used is the wordmark, which was modified and first used in 2004.

Over the years, I have gathered quite a bit of information and pictures about prototype sports uniforms and designs. I think it is fun to see what could have been for teams. Over the next few weeks I will share different prototype uniforms and designs, including pictures and the stories behind them.

The Nebraska baseball team won their first game of the season Monday in Fresno, California. The Huskers defeated the Fresno St. Bulldogs 4-1 in the final game of a four-game series. The Huskers lost the first three games to the 2008 College World Series Champion Bulldogs, one of which went 11 innings. Nebraska is 1-3 on the season and now head to the Rice Invitational in Texas to play Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Rice, and Elon.
