Happy summer Saturday, where baseball season is at it’s apex.
We’re officially bringing Tony Gwynn week to a close with this post. The greatest pure hitter of our generation and just an all-around great guy. Hopefully this brings to a close our hunting for Tony Gwynn items on eBay as well. Once you start down that path, there’s no stopping.
So here we sit about an hour before the first games of today’s slate begin, and it is time to put the flag at half mass not just for baseball being the greatest sport on earth but for the greatest sport on earth losing one of it’s most legendary and storied figures this past week. Here’s Tony Gwynn’s 3000th hit in that Stadium Olympique up in Montreal. I miss that place as well.
And here’s what Gwynn called the biggest moment and biggest hit of his career, his World Series home run after all those years in the game. Look at those quick hands, getting inside the ball.
Enjoy your Saturday in baseball and life! Thank you for your continued support of Diamond Hoggers.
