Tony Gwynn

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Tony Gwynn is the perfect Padre and the gold standard to which other Padres are judged when using the Zero to Tony Gwynn scale. He is rumored to be the father of Dodgers outfielder Anthony Gwynn Jr., but the genetic connection seems unlikely.

His retired jersey number is a part of 6 19 31 35 42 and 6 19 31 35 42.
