Former San Diego Padres slugger and baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn was born today and we wish him a happy birthday. Back when I loved the game of baseball, I always used to love meeting Tony Gwynn. In spite of being one of the biggest stars in the game at the time, he was always very cool to fans.
Also born today: actresses Candice Bergen and Glenda Jackson, singer Billy Joel, director James L. Brooks, actor Albert Finney and reporter Mike Wallace.
