Padres go old-school wrestling for player intros
As part of their “Way Back Wednesday” promotion, the San Diego Padres went with an old-school wrestling motif to introduce their players on the Petco Park videoboard.
Wearing their throwback 1985 uniforms, the Padres picked up a 3–2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday. The win was their second straight and seventh in their last 10.
Scoring a run in the sixth inning and two more in the seventh was certainly exciting, but the good vibes can surely be credited to the creativity behind one awesome promotion.
There’s a whole gallery of the intros up on Imgur, so be sure to check those out. Here are a few of the highlights:
Just incredible work by the Padres—this is what fans want out of ballpark promotions.
