Tony Gwynn statue coming

First a Wheaties box, now a bronze statue.

Eight days before his entering the baseball hall of fame, Gwynn witnessed the unveiling of a statue of his likeness just beyond the outfield wall at Petco Park.

Gwynn admired the 9 1/2-foot statue, which shows the batting star in mid-swing. The base bears the inscription “Tony Gwynn, Mr. Padre” on the front and a quote from his late father, Charles, on the back: “If you work hard, good things will happen.”
