Anthony Keith Gwynn (May 9, 1960 - June 16, 2014) tied Honus Wagner and the National League record in 1997 with his eighth career batting title with an average of .372. Gwynn played his entire 20-year career with the San Diego Padres (1982-2001) earning the name “Mr. Padre.” His preparation and study of the game was renown as he spent hours using video to analyze his swing and any little adjustments that needed to be made during his next at-bat. Along with Gwynn’s eight batting titles, he led the National League in hits seven times and runs and on base percentage once each. Tony was a perennial All-Star selection with 15 trips to the Mid-Summer Classic. He won five Gold Gloves and seven Silver Slugger Awards. Though a member of two Padre teams to take the National League pennant (1984, 1998), he never won a World Series title, despite doing his best by batting .371 with 13 hits. Tony Gwynn retired in 2001 after posting a career .338 batting average with 3,141 hits, 1,383 runs, 1,138 RBI and 319 stolen bases. A fierce hitter all-around, Gwynn also posted a .987 fielding percentage in right field over his career. Anthony Keith Gwynn was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007.
