    Damn, standup guy and all-around great ambassador for baseball in SD.

    I'll always remember him for being a beast in Ken Griffey Jr's baseball on SNES

    Ahman, way too young! He was my favorite once Rod Carew retired.

    Crap =\ RIP to a class act player. Don't like the Padres but always respected this guy for HOW he played the game.

    Kinda scary when the players you used to idolized when you were a kid start dying :S Last week it was Bob Welch.

    RIP to a great human being.

    This guy was a hero of mine through childhood.

    I'll never forget being bat boy for the dodgers in 1995 in a game against san diego, when a dodgers team rep that found out I was a huge fan took me on the field to ask Tony to sign a ball. That "Mr. Gwynn would you please sign a ball for me" almost made me crap my pants. Biggest smile ever when he signed the ball, took a picture, and talked for a good 5-10 minutes to say hello, remind me to learn my fundamentals and enjoy the game.

    Was a pleasure to watch him play year after year.

    I hate when people who made up good parts of my childhood pass away.

    RIP
