Seriously, who else would end this list?
Tony Gwynn is one of the all-time greats in MLB history and is about as San Diego as surfing and Mexican food.
Gwynn was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Long Beach, but after high school, his San Diego roots grew quickly.
"Mr. Padre" began his athletic career at San Diego State University, where he was a standout for the Aztecs in both baseball and basketball. In fact, he still owns the SDSU basketball records for most assists in a season and a career.
On the same day in 1981, Gwynn was drafted by both the Padres and the San Diego Clippers of the NBA.
After signing with the Padres, Gwynn made his MLB debut in 1982, and his stellar career was off and running.
A career .338 hitter, he spent all 20 of his seasons in San Diego, earning 15 All-Star appearances, eight National League batting titles, seven Silver Slugger awards and five Gold Gloves.
After the 2001 season, Gwynn retired from MLB and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2007, receiving nearly 98 percent of votes in his first year of eligibility.
Beginning in 2003, Gwynn returned to San Diego State as the manager of the baseball team, who plays their home games at Tony Gwynn Stadium.
During the 2009 and 2010 seasons, Gwynn's son, Tony Jr., also played for the Padres before signing with the Dodgers in the off season.
Gwynn now also occasionally serves as an analyst for Padres TV broadcasts.
