We are very sad to announce that one of the greatest hitters of all time has passed away today at the age of 54 following a battle with salivary gland cancer. Rest In Peace Tony Gwynn. Gwynn was elected to the Hall of Fame with over 97% of the vote in 2007.

Untitled Here are some thoughts that I would like to share with everyone. To me Tony Gwynn was more than just a Hall of Fame baseball player he was my hero. Growing up watching sports as a kid in San Diego I had two favorite players in Junior Seau and Tony Gwynn but only one was my hero. When I was younger and played little league I would always watch Tony Gwynn’s hitting tapes the night before a big game. Once I even got  suspended in grade school because I felt that it was more important to write Tony Gwynn a letter than write an essay on Jesus. I applied to San Diego State University because I wanted to follow in the foot steps of Tony Gwynn. I was admitted and after some goofing around like every college student does I will be graduating from San Diego State this coming Spring. I will be dedicating my diploma to the greatest man in the history of San Diego my hero, Tony Gwynn. Please feel free to share comments or story’s about Tony Gwynn in the comment section of this article.
