Padre legend Tony Gwynn dies




Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn passed away Monday. The former San Diego Padres' outfielder, who had 3,141 hits during his major league career, had been battling mouth cancer for parts of the past five years. In 1994, he came close to hitting .400, ending strike-shortened season with a .394 batting average.

Commissioner Bud Selig released a statement on his passing:

"Major League Baseball mourns the tragic loss of Tony Gwynn, the greatest Padre and one of the greatest hitters that our game has ever known, whose all-around excellence on the field was surpassed by is exuberant personality and genial disposition in life."

Gwynn was 54-years-old.
