Jerry Coleman: On a scale from Zero to Tony Gwynn

via upload.wikimedia.org

The Zero to Tony Gwynn scale is a rating of a Padres' importance to the San Diego Padres and their fans. The scale works to determine the relative importance of a particular Padre based on the assumption that Tony Gwynn is the perfect representation of the San Diego Padres.

Tony the Gwynn himself called Coleman the first real Padres Hall of Famer.

"I always told him he should be the first real Padre to go in. . . . As my career was coming to an end, he used to tell me I had a Hall of Fame career. I said, 'You should be a Hall of Famer before me.' "

Coleman while never playing for the Padres did manage for a year and has been the voice of the Padres for 38 years. He's the first Padres Broadcaster to be awarded the Ford C. Fricke award and inducted into the Hall of Fame.

In his nine years as the Yankees second baseman, Coleman played in 6 World Series and won 8 Division Titles. Coleman earned Rookie of the Year honors in 1949, played in the 1950 All-Star game, and was named the 1950 World Series MVP.

Jerry says "I"m a Padre and I'll always be a Padre".
