Baseball legend Tony Gwynn has passed away at the age of 54.
Gwynn had been fighting cancer, which had first manifested itself as a malignant growth inside his right cheek, for four years. He attributed it to years of smokeless tobacco use. Gwynn posted a .338 career batting average over 20 seasons and won eight batting titles. He retired with 3,141 hits, which ranks 19th on the all-time list, was an All-Star 15 times and won five gold gloves. Our condolences to the entire Gwynn family and anyone affected by this tragedy.
