A Sad Day For Major League Baseball

Baseball lost one of its most talented and radiant stars.

Major League Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn who played his entire 20-year career with the San Diego Padres died this past Monday of cancer at the age of 54.

Gwynn had two operations for cancer in his right cheek between August 2010 and February 2012.

The Hall of Famer believed the cancer was from him chewing tobacco.

Since March of this year, Gwynn had been on medical leave from his job as baseball coach at San Diego State University, his alma mater.

He was a third-round draft pick of the San Diego Padres in 1981.

In his Major League debut on July 19, 1982, Gwynn had two hits versus the Philadelphia Phillies.

What was unique about Tony Gwynn was that he played his entire career with the Padres, instead of moving on to play for another team for a higher salary.
