Very, very sad. He was just 54.

One of the best pure hitters the game of baseball has ever seen. He hit over .300 for 18 consecutive seasons. That is UNHEARD of...only Ty Cobb did better.

It's really depressing to see a player from my own childhood pass away. It's hard enough watching them all retire and leave the game. Makes you realize what a cruel thing time can be.

God bless his family.

Shocking to see him go so young... I know he wasn't in the best of shape, cancer-wise, but it still sucks to hear. There's not a more pure contact hitter than Gwynn in the last 50+ years and there may never be another like him. He'll definitely be missed.

I grew up watching him on the diamond...sad day.  He was a GREAT hitter and a fantastic all around player.  Seemed to also be a really cool guy in every day life.

God Bless his family and friends.

In over 95% of his plate appearances (over 10, 000 appearances). He either made contact or walked.
