Tony Gwynn Embodied Everything A Man Should Be, Minus One Bad Habit That Will Serve As His Final Lesson

I never met Tony Gwynn, yet he was always one of my favorite baseball players growing up. He was the reason why I rooted for the San Diego Padres. Heck, Gwynn was the San Diego Padres. He was also everything that a professional athlete should be. He was everything that a man should be. When I was younger, I cheered for players based on their ability. For my money, Gwynn was the best hitter I have ever seen in my lifetime. As I get older, I tend to root more for players based on who they are as a person more so than strictly on talent. No matter what age I was, Gwynn was always someone to admire, based on who he was as a person as well as who he was as a player. He was not only “Mr. Padre,” but he was the ultimate hitter, father, husband and person. Unfortunately, like everyone else, he was human, and had one bad habit. You can say that his one bad habit will serve as his final lesson, as it was one that was developed from the game he loved and gave so much.
