Everything you need to know about Tony Gwynn's passing can be found on the Mothership, though there are some great tributes by Gaslamp Ball, the Padres blogMcCovey Chronicles, the Giants blog, and even True Blue L.A., the Dodgers blog.

My own personal Tony Gwynn story was when I was six years old, and I sent a letter to the Padres clubhouse asking for an autograph of Mr. Padre.  Not only did I get an autographed photo of the whole 1994 team, but Tony himself wrote a small letter on top of the organization, thanking me for being a fan.  I still kick myself to this day because I somehow lost it after 20 years and three moves.
