Off Day Open Thread: 6/16/14

Welcome to tonight’s off day open thread.

As you all know, Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn lost his battle with cancer at the age of 54. A lot of articles have been written, a lot of stats have been posted and now, a really cool video has surfaced from an 1989 episode of “This Week In Baseball.”

And in case you missed it, our own Domenic Lanza wrote a nice piece remembering Gwynn.

Feel free to discuss whatever you’d like: other baseball games, the World Cup, the weather, the fact that the Yankees are going to be playing the Blue Jays six out of the next nine games… and remember, please be respectful to your fellow readers.
