Fans continue to pour into the Park in the Park at Petco Park to honor Tony Gywnn. Gwynn passed away today at the age of 54. Fans of many different teams can be spotted paying their last respects this evening.
Gywnn, Ripken, Clemente, Wilhelm, & Brooks Robinson round out my top 5 favorite players of all-time. Outside of being tremendous baseball players my list above encompasses a common bond. Every one of the players listed was just as good a human off the field as they were a player on the field.
RIP, Mr. Padre. Your absense from the game will leave a hole in the lineup that will never again be filled.
