Fans Slow to Warm Up to Padres' Youth Kick

Filed under San Diego Padres
July 8, 1969

Winning and attendance have been major problems for the expansionist Padres this season. The problems are directly related. The Padres haven’t been winning because they don’t have the established players to compete in the National League. And a major reason for their modest attendance has been the anonymity of the young, inexperienced club. Buzzie Bavasi
