    One of the best baseball hitters I can remember.

    Name is Gwynn, not Gwinn!

    He was indeed one of the greatest hitters in baseball history.
    Steady as she goes, year in and year out!

    But his dying of cancer surprised me.
    I'd thought he would die from problems with obesity!

    Whatever was the case, 54 is far too young!!

    Talked to more than a few that knew him in San Diego. He was a wonderful, kind, caring and humble man. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    Chewing tabacci will do it to you. Glad to see it's gone now in the big leagues. 54 is way to young to pass.

    wonder how many hits short of .400 in '94. Remember his being 'close' but no details. Similar to George Brett. Brett and Gwynn played short of minimal games to be eligible anyway. Rod Carew batted .388 in the 70s. Ted Williams btw batted .388 in 1957

    None of this, however is intended to take away from honoring Gwynn.
