This is truly a sad day for baseball. Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has passed away at 54 years young.
What I remember most about Gwynn was his smile and loveable physique.
His historical greatness deserves more praise. He’s a 15-time all star, 8-time batting champ and a career .338 hitter. He also holds the MLB record for most 5-hit games in a season. He will be missed.
From MLB.com’s Barry Bloom on Twitter:
Tony Gwynn has died, his agent John Boggs just told me. It was the phone call I’ve been dreading. God bless, Mr. Padre. I love you. @Padres
