SAN DIEGO -- San Diego knows no bounds when it comes to memorializing their beloved Hall of Famer, Tony Gwynn. The Padres have a street named after him, retired his number (19) and now a 10-foot statue of their hitting king stands in PETCO Park's Park at the Park. The new statue was unveiled on Saturday as a part of "Tribute to Tony" Weekend. It's the first statue to be erected at PETCO. "Statues are kind of symbolic," Gwynn said. "Even when I'm dead and gone this statue is going to be here, and that's a way to remind people what you did when you were here, and that's a cool thing. "I'm not going to brag about it myself, it's cool that people can go out there and take a look and see what you accomplished while you were playing the game of baseball." The statue is an action shot of Gwynn doing what he did best -- hit. The former Padre was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on July 29, 2007 in Cooperstown, N.Y.
