    20 year career BA of .337 - incredible.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    Tony and Cal both got elected to the HOF the same year.
    The 2.4% and 1.47% of eligible voters who voted against either one should have been electrocuted.

    The Padres made the World Series in 1984, Gwynn's first season as a regular, and he finished third in MVP voting that season. They also won the NL pennant in 1998.

    That came four years after perhaps the greatest what-if of his career. In 1994, Gwynn batted .394, but his season ended with everyone else's by the players' strike that canceled a World Series.

    While stars like Ken Griffey Jr. were on pace to break Roger Maris' single-season home run record, Gwynn's season marked the most viable chance any player in recent history had to product a .400 batting average for the first time since Ted Williams in 1994.
    I'll be honest, I had no idea that Ted Williams hit .400 at age 76. That's incredible.

    Re: Tony Gwynn dead

    Tony Gwynn could hit like none other. I would say him, George Brett, and Carl Yastremski, Manny Ramirez, Big Pappi and Kirby Puckett are my favorite hitters I have ever seen live and in person. Just unreal to watch hit. RIP Gwynn.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
