More than 20 former and current Padres players share their fondest single-game San Diego experience and memories with longtime Padres writer Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune. Many of the games discussed in the words of such legendary Padres as Tony Gwynn, Trevor Hoffman, Dave Winfield, Randy Jones, and Goose Gossage celebrate the extraordinary moments that have shaped the teams rich heritage in San Diego since it began play in 1969. Author Bill Center has covered the Padres for much of his professional career. He started to cover them in 1982 and became a team beat writer from 1984-86, and then assumed that same duty from 1996 to the present. He was selected President of the Baseball Writers Association of America for the 2002 season. Among Padres milestones he has witnessed are the teams first game in 1969, Tony Gwynns 3,000th hit in Montreal, Trevor Hoffman becoming the games all-time saves leader, and the teams 1984 and 1998 World Series appearances.
