A true great and professional. One of the many reasons I grew up playing baseball with as much passion as a I did. The fact that these players and owners ruined baseball with PEDs still pisses me off every time I'm reminded by some mention of a fake, over-inflated stat from the 90's-2000's. Gwynn was not one of those reminders. He was one of the few legit players that would have been great in 1890 or 1990 or 2090. He was a true talent that had a love for the game, not because it made him rich and famous, but because it was a game made for him to master. Russell Wilson is cut from the same cloth as Gwynn and if Wilson can do in football even 75% of what Gwynn did in baseball, then Wilson is a sure-fire Hall of Famer.
RIP Tony Gwynn
