Every day I am constantly “haunted by history” by the things and places around me. I took this photo on a trip to Cooperstown, New York almost 7 years ago and it is amazing to think I would be playing for him now. He is no longer with us but his accomplishments and ideals are still with us. The plaque reads all of Mr. Padre’s stats and accomplishments throughout his baseball career. It’s like Professor Blum said about a baseball card, however in this case only a very select few have a Hall of Fame plaque. It’s a timeline of history and of the 19 years of baseball Tony Gwynn played.
