Twenty three thousand fans attended the welcoming ceremony of Padres into the National League on April 8, 1969. The San Diego Padres, a Major League Baseball team is now a member of the Western Division of the National League. The franchise is sited in San Diego, California. In 1973 the franchise nearly shifted to Washington, D.C. In fact, the Topps Baseball Card Co. actually printed cards for the '73 season with "Washington" instead of San Diego. The league cancelled the idea of relocation and the padres retained their home town. It almost took a decade for the team to post a winning record. In 1984, under manager Dick Williams and with star players including Steve Garvey, Graig Nettles and Rich Gossage, as well as former San Diego State University baseball and basketball star Tony Gwynn, padres won their first National League West championship. In 1994, John Moores, a software magnate acquired controlling ownership in the team from Tom Werner, who consequently created an association that bought the Boston Red Sox.
In 1996 under president Larry Lucchino, and with a team administered by former Padre catcher Bruce Bochy and star player Gwynn, who won his seventh National League batting championship, National League MVP Ken Caminiti, leading hitter Rickey Henderson, pitcher Fernando Valenzuela, first baseman Wally Joyner and outfielder Steve Finley, the Padres won the National League West championship in a stirring competition, sweeping the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium in the final series of the regular season. The Padres were plagued by poor pitching and experienced an off-season. The one bright spot was Tony Gwynn's eighth and last National League batting championship, won in the final days of the season. Dave Winfield became the first player to be voted for the National Baseball Hall of Fame as a Padre in 2001. the padres concluded the 2005 season with lowest-ever winning percentage in the Western Division Champion. There had been a rumor that the Padres would be the first team in history to win a division and finish below .500, but their win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in September bestowed them their 81st victory.
The 2005 Padres characterized bright spots including ace pitcher Jake Peavy, NL strikeout leader, and closer Trevor Hoffman.
