Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, one of the greatest hitters of his generation, died on Monday at age 54 after a battle with cancer, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum said.

15-time All-Star, Gwynn had 3,141 career hits, won five Gold Glove awards and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot in 2007. Only Ty Cobb won more batting titles (12). In his 20-year career from 1982-2001, Gwynn also led the National League in hits seven times.
