Padres will hold tribute to Tony Gwynn tonight at Petco Park

Our Padres have been on the road since June 10th, but tonight they'll make their return to Petco Park for their first home game since the passing of Tony Gwynn. As such, they have a special tribute planned to honor Mr. Padre at tonight's game.

We've seen all the different ways other teams throughout the league have honored Gwynn, but it'll be nice to finally have our team back in San Diego for their own tribute to the greatest player and one of the greatest people this organization has ever seen. The Padres have always done well with things like these. Trevor Hoffman's number retirement ceremony and Jerry Coleman's statue unveiling in recent years, as well as Coleman's memorial service just a few months ago, were all incredibly well-done and I have no doubts that the Padres will go above and beyond for tonight's tribute and any forthcoming services to honor Gwynn.

And don't worry if you're out of town or, like myself, just can't make it to the game tonight. The Padres will stream the tribute live online, and on Fox Sports SD (I assume).
