RIP Tony Gwynn

I watched Tony Gwynn play baseball for several years. Most of them were in his twilight years as far as the game goes, but that doesn’t take away from any of his many accomplishments during that time. I watched on television as he joined the 3,000 hit club, kept my eye on the newspaper every morning to keep an eye on his battle with Todd Helton as they battled to be the one to capture the elusive .400 batting average, and cheered every time he slapped that baseball through the 5.5 hole. (For the uninitiated, that would be the gap between the third baseman and the shortstop.) He was always in high spirits because he loved the game; but he loved the city more.
