R.I.P. Tony Gwynn

Post by shad » Tue Jun 17, 2014 7:23 am

I love baseball and Tony Gwynn was one of my favorites, so sad to see him go. The pro athletes of today should take a page out of his book because he was the epitome of class with talent. Mr. Padre was one of the purest hitters of all time. His hands may have been small but his heart was huge. 5.5 hole 4ever

And I'll never forget this Gwynn homerun during the WS in old Yankee Stadium. His first post season dinger.

Great ballplayer and better person! Nate Colbert is just about the only other Padre I can remember.
Got to see him play at Jack Murphy stadium in the late 80s. Yeah Shad, the man who invented the 5.5 hole, love it
