Happy Tony Gwynn Day

Born on this day in 1960, the best player in San Diego Padre history: Tony Gwynn.

Twenty Major League seasons. Fifteen Major League All Star games. Eight National League batting crowns. Seven National League Silver Slugger Awards. Five National League Gold Gloves. Two National League Pennants. One team.

Interesting fact: Tony collected his 2000th and 3000th hits on the same day on the calendar (8/6/1993 and 8/6/1999 respectively). This day happens to be the birthday of his mom, Vendella Gwynn.

RIP someone who watched you were, quite simply, the greatest ballplayer of all time.
