Historical Tony Gwynn Milestones
One of the greatest hitters in Major League Baseball history, Tony Gwynn forever left his mark on the game with his unmatched and consistent offensive ability. A career .338 hitter, Gwynn played all 20 seasons of his big league career for the San Diego Padres. A National League All-Star for 15 seasons, Gwynn won an incredible eight NL Batting Titles between 1984 and 1997 while solidifying his legacy next to those of Ted Williams, Lou Gehrig and Honus Wagner as one of the greatest contact hitters to ever step into the batter's box. Debuting with the Padres in 1982, Gwynn would post a career-low batting average of a mere .289, an average most hitters would bend over backwards for! Despite being known for his consistently sharp hitting at the plate, Gwynn also stole 319 bases and won five Gold Glove awards during his twenty year career. Retiring in 2001 with the highest career batting average for Major Leaguers after the World War II, Tony Gwynn was forever enshrined at the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown in 2007 with over 97 percent approval.
An unforgettable force both in the batter's box and while flashing the leather, San Diego Padre great and Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn is one of the hardest-working and most accomplished players in baseball history. Spending an incredible 20 seasons with the Padres, Gwynn posted over 3,000 hits while building a Hall of Fame resume as the most consistent hitter in the history of the game. An all-time great none of us will ever forget, no baseball collection is truly complete without drafting the one and only Tony Gwynn to the roster.]
