Nice SD Helmet… But You Never Played for the Padres


That’s the 1985 All-Star game… “Nolan Ryan was selected to eight All-Star teams in his 27-season career, but this was his only All-Star plate appearance.” Paul Lukas wrote an ESPN article about All-Stars wearing helmets that weren’t their teams… and the Padres made the list twice.


Dave Parker rocked a Padres helmet in the 1977 All-Star game too. I, for one, can’t see non-Padres wearing Padres gear without thinking the mystery behind Pete Rose and his SD hat
