A Sad Day

Just got out of the shower, and was watching halftime of the Germany versus Portugal game. Listening to the domination by Germany I noticed Gwynn written across the bottom. Was sad to see that this legend has passed away at 54.

While it was from a distance I can say I was honored to have seen the man last year on vacation when we went to the Padres game. He was doing a teaching thing for television on the wiffle ball field. At the time I was thrilled beyond belief, but upset at the same time. The thrill was I haven't seen many players like him in person throughout my life. The upset was he looked rough, and I felt in my heart that he didn't have many years left.

All I can say is it was an honor to have seen you play.


  1. Reading about everyone's personal stories have helped me deal with his passing. Thanks for sharing.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Gwynn.
