 Like Clemente and Aaron, Gwynn played in the shadows of better known players in bigger markets.    Yet, he put together an amazing Hall of Fame career.     
 
Gwynn made 15 NL All-Star teams, won eight batting titles and finished in the top 10 for 15 consecutive seasons.
His .338 career average is the best in the sport since Ted Williams retired with a .344 average in 1960.
 
Unfortunately, I did not get to see Gwynn play because I’ve always lived in AL cities. He was the quiet superstar and best pure hitter since Rod Carew.
