121 - Chris Gwynn


121 - Chris Gwynn 

Front: An infield play. Looks like a race to the bag with the winner yet to be determined.

Back: The batting cage.

Better side: While I'd normally pick the action shot, the batting cage photo seems rarer, so I'd pick that.

Ties to my personal collections: None.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 6 making back-to-back 6 paragraph wikis! That streak ends next time.

Wiki-facts: "While with the Dodgers, Gwynn made the final out in Dennis Martínez's perfect game on July 28, 1991"

Google it: Related searches: "Tony Gwynn". It even has 'Tony Gwynn's brother' on the pull down menu when searching.  

How was his strike-shortened 1994? After a two year stint in KC, he'd be back with the Dodgers. Went .268 with 3 HR and 13 RBI, but had only 71 AB.

Birthday boy: October 13, 1964. Nobody in the *-reference world was born that date. Wiki lists Jamaican writer Colin Channer as born that date, as well as TV host Chip Foose.s

Next up: 122 - Tony Gwynn
