Cheers to the Stooge


I hope all is well in your worlds.  I am out of the office for the next week but will have my ears on so feel free to reach out. Go catch a Padre game this year, do it for Number 19.  Do you remember the ‘84 season comeback and our “Cub Busters” T-shirts?  His 1,000…2,000…3,000 hits?  His attitude and professionalism on and off the field are everything I love about sport.  He is a true gem and San Diego always has Mr. Padre to cherish.  You will be missed Tony.
