An easy to read children's book chronicling the exciting career of Tony Gwynn. When San Diego earned a trip to the 1998 World Series, outfielder Tony Gwynn was perhaps the happiest Padre. Gwynn has been one of baseball's best hitters since arriving in the Majors, and has had many opportunities to play in other cities for more money. Barry Bloom explains why Gwynn has remained loyal to San Diego, and how that loyalty has paid off through Hall of Fame numbers and the support and love of Padres fans.
