Padres ♥ the '90s on third Retro Night

Having time traveled previously to the '70s and '80s on earlier Retro Nights this season, the Padres went back to the '90s on Friday.

Enhancing the '90s vibe were pinstriped blue-and-orange San Diego uniforms of the era, a No Doubt tribute band (playing a Sublime song) and alumni of the Pads' 1998 NL championship squad like Steve Finley, Archi Cianfrocco, Mark Sweeney, Wally Joyner and in the broadcast booth, Tony Gwynn.

There probably isn't time left in the season, or the proper historical nostalgic perspective, to get an '00s night in -- we'll have to wait a little while for that one.
