Happy Birthday, Mr. Padre!

Today is Tony Gwynn‘s 54th birthday. I can hardly believe Tony is 54.  It seems like just yesterday I was sitting in Jack Murphy Stadium (notice I didn’t say Qualcomm?) watching him battle Willie McGee or Will Clark for a batting title.* *I’m old.  No, seriously, I’m really old now. Allow me to tell you a funny story that involved Tony and my brother, Mark. My brother...
