Tony Gwynn 5.5K Run & Walk

Jun 23, 2018

The Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation will once again be hosting a 5.5 kilometer walk/run/hike on June 23rd to pay tribute to Tony Gwynn - a hall of famer, coach, teammate, and loving neighbor. Nicknamed “Mr. Padre” for his unfaltering commitment to his hometown, Tony is considered one of the best and most consistent hitters in baseball history. The majority of his record breaking hits were targeted to the thin slice of infield between the third baseman and shortstop, which he later dubbed as the “5.5 hole”. Sponsored by AleSmith Brewing Company, funds raised from this event will forever honor this legend and raise money for the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation.​
