SAN FRANCISCO -- The Giants paid tribute to Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn, who died last week of cancer, before their game against the San Diego Padres at AT&T Park on Monday night.
As both teams gathered along the baselines for a moment of silence, Giants manager Bruce Bochy presented Padres manager Bud Black a Gwynn-signed base from his final game in San Francisco that had been on display at the park. Bochy, who both played with and managed Gwynn, also briefly addressed the crowd.
"I played with, coached and managed many great players, but at the top of that list is Tony Gwynn," said Bochy. "Tony, I'm going to thank you for the memories, we're going to miss you."
The Giants aired a video tribute to Gwynn on the center-field scoreboard and also hung a commemorative marker in right field denoting "Gwynn 19." It will be on display for the entire series to honor Gwynn's memory. Gwynn spent his entire career with the Padres.
