Anthony Keith "Tony" Gwynn, Sr. played right field for the San Diego Padres for 20 years. Nicknamed “Mr. Padre”, Gwynn was an eight-time batting title winner with a career average of .338 (and .444 with the bases loaded). His 3,141 hits place him 18th on the all-time list and justify his Hall of Fame status. Following his retirement, Gwynn became the head baseball coach at his alma mater, San Diego State University. Upon Gwynn's death in 2014, Greg Maddux remarked that he was “the best pure hitter I ever faced”. Gwynn dueled with Maddux 107 times in his career, and never once struck out.
