Did you know that Tony Gwynn was highly recruited out of High School not as an outfielder, but rather a point guard? When he went to San Diego State University he was there on a basketball scholarship, he didn't join the baseball team until his sophomore year, and on draft day he was selected by both the San Diego Padres (MLB Draft, 3rd Round, 58th overall) and the San Diego Clippers (NBA Draft, 10th Round, 214th overall).

Not one player in the entire history of the National League has won more batting titles in the senior circuit than Tony Gwynn. His eight batting championships (1984, 1987-1989 & 1994-1997) tied Honus Wagner and the two remain in the batting average record book to this day. Join Baseball Almanac as we take a look at some additional numbers of interest as they relate one of the most consistent hitters in Major League history:

.338 - Tony Gwynn finished his career with a .338 batting average, the seventeenth highest in Major League history, the highest by a San Diego Padres player, and if you review the Top 1,000 you'll notice it's the highest by any player who began his career after World War II.

5 - Tony Gwynn led all National League right fielders in defensive putouts three times (1984, 1986, 1990), assists two times (1984 & 1986), double plays two times (1984 & 1991), fielding percentage two times (1984 & 1986), and won five Gold Gloves (1986, 1987 & 1989-1991).

7 - Tony Gwynn won seven Silver Slugger Awards (1984, 1986, 1987, 1989, 1994, 1995, 1997) - the only outfielders with more are Barry Bonds & Manny Ramirez .

15 - Tony Gwynn was a National League All-Star from 1984 through 1987 then 1989 through 1999, fifteen times - the most by any San Diego Padres player in franchise history.

19 - Tony Gwynn wore # #19 with the San Diego Padres and they retired his number in 2004, two years after they had inducted him into the Padres Hall of Fame.

97.61 - Tony Gwynn was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on January 9, 2007, receiving 532 out of 545 ballots (97.61%), seventh highest percentage in Hall of Fame voting history at the time, and just thirteen votes short of a unanimous selection.

1,135 - Tony Gwynn recorded his 1,135th hit on September 17, 1988 , passing Dave Winfield as the all-time Padres hit leader.

3,000 - Tony Gwynn joined the 3,000 Hits Club on August 6, 1999 . He also had his 2,000th career hit on August 6th , back in 1993, and his mother, Vendella Gwynn was born on the 6th of August.

Petco Park opened on April 8, 2004, replacing Qualcomm Stadium as the home park of San Diego Padres . The stunning open-air ballpark is located at 19 Tony Gwynn Drive, San Diego, California. In 2007, a 9 1/2-foot, 1,200-pound bronze statue of Gwynn was unveiled just beyond Petco Park's outfield. A plaque on the front reads, "Tony Gwynn, Mr. Padre" and at the base, on the back, is a quote from his father, "If you work hard, good things will happen."
