More praise for Tony Gwynn

Did you know that in 1987, San Diego Padre legend Tony Gwynn hit .370 while stealing 56 bases. It remains the only time in the past 92 years anybody hit .370 with at least 50 steals. The only other players to ever do so were George Sisler, Ty Cobb, Tris Speaker and Benny Kauff. SI.com’s Tom Verducci has a great article about “Mr. Padre”, who passed away yesterday at the age of 54.

Farewell, Mr. Padre

Extremely sad news today as it has been announced that “Mr. Padre”, Tony Gwynn passed away at the age of 54 from cancer. As a player who stayed with the same team for the entirety of his career and always conducted himself with grace and class, his legacy transcends that of one of the greatest hitters of all time.
