Remembering you on the anniversary of your passing. May you rest in peace and may God richly bless you. I watched you from the day your career started until the day it ended. Thank you Tony for the great play and the great memories.

As a San Diegan, I can just say that while the Padres are a team with almost no playoff history, we still are among the luckiest fans of all for having the pleasure of cheering for Tony Gwynn through his entire career.
