Tuesday marks the birthday of a baseball legend who left us far too soon. Tony Gwynn would have turned 58. Gwynn spent his entire career with his hometown San Diego Padres, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2007, and passed away at the age of 54 in 2014.

On his birthday, the baseball world paid tribute to one of the all-time greats.


It’s certainly bittersweet.

Gwynn certainly left us far too soon. But days like these serve as a reminder of how great Gwynn was both on and off the field.
