Tony Gwynn, a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame and one of the best hitters in the history of the national pastime, died this morning at the age of 54.

The San Diego Padres, for whom Gwynn played and accumulated 3,141 hits from 1982-2001, confirmed his death on its official Twitter feed Monday.

"We are terribly sad to say goodbye to our teammate, our friend and a legend, Tony Gwynn. Rest in peace, Mr. Padre," the team posted just moments ago.

The baseball legend had been battling salivary gland cancer, a fight he began in 2009 when a malignant tumor was removed from his right cheek.

Gwynn claimed that the cancer in the salivary gland was a result of his longtime habit of chewing tobacco. The cancer returned twice after 2009.

He underwent surgery in early 2012; in each case Gwynn valiantly fought back with the positive attitude, patience and resolve he showed on the field.

Gwynn's physical appearance - not even 6' and over 200 pounds - defied his athleticism; his frame was a self-described "body by Betty Crocker."

Sadly, in his final days, a legal battle over Kasem's care overshadowed the Detroit native's inestimable contribution to the world of broadcasting.

After a long battle with Parkinson's Disease and dementia, Kasem was removed from life support earlier this week.
