We are crusading for the Padres and San Diego in search of our collective identity. We aim to paint the town brown in a show of support to our unique team, town, and history. Bring Back the Brown’s, Starting Nine is a roster of local businesses contributing to the campaign by offering discounted specials, making products, and organizing events all related to the Friar’s true color, brown. So floss that brown, and dig up that pride, it’s time to take ownership of our own identity SD!
