For whatever reason I was recollecting about being a Clippers fan to a limited degree since I lived for a brief period in El Cajon and then in military (Navy) housing in the Serra Mesa neighborhood of San Diego from about 1985-87 right when my favorite baseball player instantly became Tony Gwynn. So much so that I patterned how I approached baseball after his style, ways and pointers given from time to time.
Well before his Hall of Fame MLB career, he was nice at hoops, yes basketball While at San Diego State University.
Peep the video. To top if off the San Diego Clippers drafted him. Surely not the most temping lure away from his love and pursuit and attainment of greatest in baseball…Plus he was A NATURALLY-GIFTED BASEBALLER (NGB)…see Trout, Grif, Puckett, Yaz, Ichiro…I will stop but so many NGBs like Valenzuela haha.
