The Tony Gwynn Museum at AleSmith has an update.

The 5,000 square foot museum will be the home to more than 300 items from the baseball Hall of Famers career, spanning from his early days in Little League, his time playing and coaching at SDSU and, of course, his entire Padres career, and will be occasionally rotated out to keep things fresh and new.

They are planning to complete the project by the 2016 MLB All-Star game, that will be hosted right here in San Diego at Petco Park on July 12th. To accomplish their goal, they are going to attempt to raise some funds.

In case you missed it, Sac Bunt Chris and myself had the awesome honor of being on Padres Social Hour last Friday, mere hours after the trade deadline. We both had a blast and a huge thank you goes out to Jesse, Blooper (Seth), Nicky and the poor intern who had to fetch us unwrapped Watermelon Jolly Ranchers, cut into 3rds and soaked in a bowl of strawberry lemonade, during every commercial break. We are so demanding.

Join us for Part 1 of the highly anticipated Jesse Agler interview! We sit down with the host of Padres POV and occasional TV/Radio broadcaster at Mike Hess Brewing in North Park to chat about what really makes him tick. When he, and his dad, think his love of baseball started, how he got his start in broadcasting, what he remembers from his initial Miami Dolphins interview with Mike Dee, who he reaches out to in San Diego when he needs some broadcasting advice and MORE!

We also chat with Greg Hess and, a familiar name in Padre-land, Cesar Torres, about the ins and outs of Mike Hess Brewing! How they got their start, Hessfest (THIS SATURDAY! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!), the Open Mike cans, their big plans in OB and North Park and more!

*Due to the file size I had to split up the Jesse Agler interview into 2 parts. Part 2 will be up as soon as my Vimeo account limit refreshes (Monday….I think)

We’ve now done 20 episodes of the video series and 30 episodes of the podcast. That’s a lot of beer and baseball chat! Thanks for watching & listening!

Today is a sad day for me and for many of you reading this. On June 16th, 2014, we lost Mr. Padre Tony Gwynn. I still greatly miss him and Jerry Coleman to this day. They were two legends that meant the world to San Diego, both on and off the field, and can never be replaced. I wanted to do something special for them when they passed away last season so I’ve been working on a Jerry and Tony tribute episode for the past year now and it keeps growing and growing. I’ve already interviewed numerous people that were close to them and there are 3 or 4 more people that I’m hoping to chat with in the coming weeks.

One of those people that I chatted with was Steve Poltz, who performed his amazing tribute song for Tony called “Hey, Hey, Number 19” that I shot and edited. As a tribute to Tony we thought it would be nice to release that portion now.

I hope Tony & Jerry enjoy it from that ballpark in the sky.
