Happy 50th Birthday Tony Gwynn!

New, 9 comments

The greatest Padre who ever lived turns 50 today.

4/9/2007:

I read an article that said you thought you would still be able to hit Major League pitching when you turned 50 years old.  Do you still think you could hit Major League pitching today?

[Confidently] Yeah. [Pause] Yeah.  You know it's like riding a bike you never forget. 

I sometimes still catch myself day dreaming about a revolutionary new knee replacement surgery that would allow Tony the Gwynn to return to the field, but  alas...

Happy Birthday Tony the Gwynn!
