San Diego Padres legend Tony Gwynn died at age 54 on Monday.


He had been undergoing treatment for cancer, and had been on medical leave from his job coaching San Diego State since April.

Gwynn retired in 2001. He played for 20 seasons, compiling more than 3,000 hits and entering the Hall of Fame in 2007. His incredible stats show he was one of the best hitters in the history of the sport.

According to CSN Philly, Gwynn was first diagnosed with cancer in 2010. He has had two surgeries, one to remove a tumor on his cheek.

His son, Philadelphia Phillies player Tony Jr., told CSN on Sunday, "This has been the hardest of the four years he’s fought it, by far."

Loved Gwynn jr (we had him for a few years before he went down to chill in SD/LA) and who doesnt love the daddy.

He deserves and will get a huge ordeal over this in baseball over the next few days, im sure of it.

He was diagnosed with cancer five years ago. You've got to wonder if death was his only relief?

Never got to watch him play to be honest. Heard he was a modern day honus wagner. Looking at the numbers, it's hard to deny it.

I've watched his son play, not very good.
