It's a sad, sad day in the baseball world as Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn passed away at age 54 after a battle with cancer.
The Cubs and White Sox both paid respects on Twitter to the legendary hitter:

Gwynn never faced the Sox in the regular season in his career, but he did play 173 games against the Cubs, including five in the 1984 NLCS. Gwynn hit .368 in that postseason series when the Padres upset the Cubs and marched to the World Series.
In 85 games at Wrigley Field, Gwynn collected 116 hits, good for a .335 average.
