The San Diego Padres, prior to becoming a 1969 major league expansion team, were a Pacific Coast League team from 1936 to 1968. The team was formed when the Hollywood Stars were unable to compete financially with the Los Angeles Angels and moved south to San Diego. The Padres took PCL championships in 1937, 1962, 1964, and 1967. The Padres were the first professional team of Ted Williams who signed as a pitcher while still in high school in 1936. When moved to the outfield he hit .287, 23, 109 in 180 games in 1936-1937. The Red Sox bought Williams and teammate Bobby Doerr who had signed with Hollywood and started at 2B while also still in high school.
