The San Diego Padres celebrated the life and career of the late Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn before Wednesday night's game against the Seattle Mariners.
The team's official Twitter feed showed how other parts of the field were used to honor Gwynn:
The San Diego State baseball team, which Gwynn coached for several years, threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
Gwynn, who lost his battle with cancer Monday, attended San Diego State, played his entire marvelous career with the Padres and then returned to coach the Aztecs. He was one of the city's most legendary figures—in or out of sports—earning the nickname Mr. Padre.
There weren't likely many dry eyes at Petco Park on Wednesday night.
