Tony Gwynn's Hall of Fame plaque describes him as "an artisan with the bat," but that was only a part of what made him a special player and person.
Gwynn spent his 20-year career in San Diego, earning the nickname "Mr. Padre" and bringing fun to the game with his hearty laugh and warm personality.
On Monday, baseball lost one of its most beloved players when Gwynn died of cancer. He was 54. (Wire Reports)
