Capt. Troy Sears of Next Level Sailing in San Diego, in a remarkably quick turnaround, has crafted a powerful tribute to Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn. It's a white 50-by-40 foot flag featuring Gwynn's uniform number with the San Diego Padres, 19, fashioned in the team's style and colors from 1984 — brown, orange and gold.

It's going to fly from the America at Maritime Museum, but Sears completed the project and took the flag for a sail on a schooner in San Diego Bay on Wednesday, just two days after the news of Gwynn's death at age 54.

Thanks to Lobshots for helping to bring this to our attention.
