GENERALS PAY TRIBUNE TO THE LATE TONY GWYNN

its greatest players in June, but one of the best humanitarian’s baseball has
ever known. Tony Gwynn, 54, lost his battle with cancer on June 16, 2014 and to honor Gwynn and his entire family the Jackson Generals are wearing special #19 patches on their home pinstripe jerseys.
Tony’s Brother Chris, who
played 10 seasons in the Majo
r Leagues, is the Seattle Mariners’ Director of Player Development and
has been in his current role since 2012. The Generals began wearing the black patch with the white numeral 19 on July 10th (pictured on the jersey of Dario Pizzano). The lefty-swinging Gwynn, nicknamed Mr. Padre, had a career .338 batting average, won eight National League batting titles and played in the
Padres’ only two World Series.
 Gwynn collected 3,141 hits during a Hall of Fame career spanning 20 seasons, all of which spent with San Diego. The Jackson Generals are the Double-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners and have been affiliated with Seattle since 2007.
