    20 year career BA of .337 - incredible.


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

    (maybe)

    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 Twitter facts are crazy... 323 combined AB vs Glavine, Maddux, Smoltz, and Pedro...only 3Ks.

    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.
