R.I.P Tony Gwynn

The first National League Baseball game I watched was in San Diego. Tony Gwynn was the Padres star and a player I respected being a fan of the game. A career .338 hitter, heck Gwynn batted .324 the year he retired. He was a 15 time All-Star and 3141 hits good for 19th all time. He was a Hall of Fame player.

Here is a news report..

Sad when a player you watched dies. It ages you as well. However 54 is way too soon to die. Another reason to hate cancer.

Thank you for what you did on the field. Thank you even more for what you did off the field. May you rest in peace Mr. Padre.
