    Offseason

    Regular season

    As of 2010, no Padres pitcher has ever thrown a no-hitter. The closest any has come to date came on July 18 against the Philadelphia Phillies, when Steve Arlin came within one out of a no-hitter before a Denny Doyle single broke up the bid.

    Awards and honors

    1972 Major League Baseball All-Star Game

    • Nate Colbert, reserve[6]

    Colbert scored the winning run, but he brought the wrong uniform with him to Atlanta. The San Diego Padres' slugger donned his road jersey with SAN DIEGO on it instead of his home one with PADRES on it.
