RIP Tony. One of the best hitters ever in the game. A lifelong favorite of many people and a good guy. He coached SDSU for about 10 years and did a great job. He will be missed.

Very sad to hear. Not just a great ball player but a genuinely good person. Thanks for the great memories. Hopefully some good will come of this and people will quit tobacco.

Mr. Padre, you will be missed but your legacy lives on. We love you.

One of the good guys who did things by the book, never embarrassed the game, and didn't spend a lot of time seeking media attention. Baseball and all sports need more like him.

I loved watching Tony Gwynn play both at baseball and at life,
