    Great hitter and a good guy. I remember the AS game at Fenway when Ted was still alive how the two of them bonded.

    He was great for the game one of the guys that you'd watch and you wish was in your organization.

    Tony Gwynn struck out 434 times in 10,232 plate appearances. He faced Pedro 36 times, never K’d. Schilling 43 times, 2 K’s. Wow.

    I remember watching Tony Gwynn many times, including the last of his 3,141 hits in the penultimate game of his career in October 2001. The season had been extended a week because of the interruption of 9-11 and Gwynn shared the spotlight with teammate Ricky Henderson, who recorded his 3,000th hit that weekend.

    Less than two years later I saw Tony Gwynn coach son Tony Gwynn at Tony Gwynn Stadium as his San Diego State team uphended Air Force in Mountain West Conference play. I recall that the Air Force players appeared somber just two days after U.S. Armed Forces had invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003.

    Gwynn was an all-time great basketball player at San Diego State, where he was a point guard from 1978-81.
