Hmmmm...without prompting, I don't think I'd have seen a swastika, there...
Same here. But now I can't unsee it. Too bad. I've always wanted the Swinging Friar on the hat. It is the coolest logo in MLB. The interlocking SD is too Yankee. I would rather see San Diego on the shirt.

Yeah I like the swinging friar too. Maybe if they can't win at baseball they can be good swingers LOLOLOLOL. Seriously, all they had to do was simplify the damn logo and get the SD out of the way and folks wouldn't be imagining a swastika. BTW had no idea the padres were swinging at the missions. Who woulda thunk? LOL

They have another official cap called the “clubhouse cap”, it’s the cap they’re supposed to wear in the locker room and press conferences, but nobody recalls when they were ever worn by players and coaches in an official capacity. That said, the Padres clubhouse cap is this, I don’t see why this couldn’t replace the swastika cap as the batting practice cap.

I don't know, I can imagine a penis and scrotal sac. Better leave it in the clubhouse.
