Congratulations, Cal, and let's not forget Tony Gwynn, hero of Gaslamp Ball.
Most of us probably won't live to see another "Iron Man," but I think overlooked is the fact that with conditioning and marketing and the fetish for guys who look like athletes still prevelant, it's going to be quite a while before we see another fat little right fielder poke the ball wherever he pleases over 3,000 times.
Two great players, two Hall of Famers.
