OUTSIDE THE HUDDLE Blogging The World of Sports By Bill Gutman, HUDDLIN’ WITH THE PROS! Columnist and author of The Mike Fargo Mysteries series Remembering Tony Gwynn’s Smile: His Battle with Oral Cancer and the Dangers of Chewing Tobacco (July 2014) The death of Baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn on June 16, was met with an outpouring of grief from those in the sports community and everyone connected to it. Not only was Gwynn one of the greatest hitters ever, but he was a gentleman with a giving nature and code of ethics who never had a bad word to say about anyone. In this age of free agency, when athletes often chase after the last buck, Tony Gwynn remained a San Diego Padre for life. He played college baseball at San Diego State, then was drafted by the Padres in 1981, came up to the big leagues in 1982 and stayed for 20 years. There was never a thought of leaving -- of testing the free agency waters. The Padres knew it, the fans knew it, and opposing teams knew it. Mr. Padre, as he was called, was ...

Tony Gwynn, what a great icon in Baseball. You'll be missed, sad you're gone so early. Bio below. Former Major League all-star and San Diego State outfielder Tony Gwynn enters his 12th season at the helm of the Aztec baseball program. His tenure at SDSU follows a standout Major League career that saw him inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in January 2007. An All-American at San Diego State as a collegiate player, Gwynn was named SDSU's head baseball coach on September 21, 2001, and officially took the reins of the Aztec program in July 2002. He had served as a volunteer assistant coach with the Aztecs during the 2002 campaign under former head coach Jim Dietz, who retired at the end of that season. Gwynn became only the fourth head coach in SDSU history since the sport of baseball was elevated to "major" varsity status in 1936. He succeeded the coach for whom he played for three years during his collegiate baseball career. It didn't take him long to become acclimated to the college game as h ...
Tony Gwynn. He was born the same month and year as my younger brother (May 1960) and died yesterday of mouth cancer attributed to an addiction to chewing tobacco. Tony was one of the greatest hitters in the history of Major League baseball. He played 20 years with the San Diego Padres, batted over .300 19 straight years, averaged fewer than 30 strikeouts a year, and was – as the cliché goes – money at the plate. My son, Chad, who played (Bethel (Indiana)) and coached (Bethel, Air Force, and MidAmerica Nazarene) college baseball, idolized Gwynn and called him "the guy you'd most want at the plate when you needed a hit in the 80s and 90s." When Chad was coaching at Air Force, Gwynn was coaching at San Diego State and Chad was thrilled to get a chance to reconnect with him after having been introduced to him once briefly in the visitors' clubhouse at Coors Field in Denver when the Padres were playing the Rockies. Chad could do a mean impression of Tony's distinct high voice and cackle, and he didn't let ...
Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn dies at 54... San Diego — Tony Gwynn, the Hall of Famer with a sweet lefthanded swing who spent his entire 20-year career with the Padres and was one of San Diego’s most beloved athletes, died of cancer Monday. He was 54. Gwynn, nicknamed ‘‘Mr. Padre,’’ had been on a medical leave since late March from his job as baseball coach at San Diego State, his alma mater. He died at a hospital in suburban Poway, agent John Boggs said. ‘‘For more than 30 years, Tony Gwynn was a source of universal goodwill in the national pastime, and he will be deeply missed by the many people he touched,’’ Commissioner Bud Selig said. Gwynn had two operations for cancer in his right cheek between August 2010 and February 2012. The second surgery was complicated, with surgeons removing a facial nerve because it was intertwined with a tumor inside his right cheek. They grafted a nerve from Gwynn’s neck to help him eventually regain facial movement. Gwynn had said he believed the cancer ...

Great recruiting visit with Mikey at San Diego State. Really proud of how he handled himself. Fun to have Tony Gwynn reference him in his opening remarks to the team before practice.
