#52 - Tony Gwynn

It’s a rarity in baseball for a player to remain with a team throughout his entire career, but Tony Gwynn was such a man! Nicknamed Mr. Padre“, Gwynn began his career in San Diego in 1982 and remained there for 20 seasons! Diuring this time, Gwynn won 8 batting titles (tied for the most in National League history), maintained a career .338 career batting average while never hitting below .309 in any full season, was a 15-time All-Star, and was recognized for his skills on offense and defense with seven Silver Slugger Awards and five Gold Glove Awards. He played in the only two World Series appearances in San Diego’s franchise history and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007, his first year of eligibility!

Add to all of that the fact that Dimino regards Gwynn as his “favorite out of town player,” and his appearance in this list is assured!
