A legend of San Diego baseball, Wietelmann holds the distinction of being among the few players/coaches to have an association with the Padres in the PCL (1949-53), minor leagues (1959-65, 1968) and majors (1969-1980s). He even earned the nickname "Mr. Indispensable." Wietelmann's coach's jersey hails from the second campaign for the big-league expansion Padres and features nice felt-on-tackle-twill identifiers, along with piping on the sleeves and neck plus a chain-stitched "1970" below the Wilson size 46 tag. Moderate overall wear.
