The 1972 San Diego Padres season was the fourth season in franchise history.

Offseason

Regular season

Until 2021, no Padres pitcher had ever thrown a no-hitter. On July 18 against the Philadelphia Phillies, Steve Arlin came within one out of a no-hitter before a Denny Doyle single broke up the bid.[2]

Awards and honors

1972 Major League Baseball All-Star Game

  • Nate Colbert, reserve[7]

Colbert scored the winning run, but he brought the wrong uniform with him to Atlanta. The San Diego Padres' slugger donned his road jersey with SAN DIEGO on it instead of his home one with PADRES on it.
