Ted Leitner: On a scale of Zero to Tony Gwynn

via <a href=""></a>

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.

Ted Leitner, a San Diego Sports radio icon. The man with a gift for gab. The man with the tan. Thirty years of service in the San Diego Padres broadcast booth.

How many cold San Diego evenings did you snuggle up in your long sleeve shirt and listen to Uncle Teddy whisper sweet nothings into your ear? Countless.

He may never have been a player but there is little doubt that he deserves our respect for his long time work with the Padres.

How would he measure up on a scale from Zero to Tony Gwynn, that's the real question.
