So Long Tony Gwynn

The San Diego Padre Hall Of Famer died today of cancer.   He played early in his career for San Diego's single A team the Walla Walla Padres.  A Sports Illustrated article on him mentioned his start in Walla Walla, one of the few times up to then that the town got national sports recognition.
Known as Mr. Padre, Gwynn had 3141 hits in his Major League career.
