SAN DIEGO — There is no bigger baseball figure in this town than Tony Gwynn, the Padres’ Hall-of-Fame outfielder who now serves as a color analyst on their TV broadcasts. Gwynn, of course, also is the baseball coach at San Diego State, where he helped mold Stephen Strasburg into the top prospect he is now.
Gwynn was a popular man at Petco Park this afternoon. Everyone wanted to know how he thinks his protege will do once he arrives in Washington in the next seven-to-10 days.
As you’ll read in this article on CSNwashington.com, Gwynn has no doubt Strasburg will handle all the pressure and hype with his usual aplomb.
