Shocking, we know, but Hall of Fame outfielder and all-around nice guy Tony Gywnn reportedly owes the good ol’ U.S. of A. about $400,000 in unpaid taxes from 2003, ’07, and ’09.
No word yet on exactly why Gwynn is ducking Uncle Sam, but this news will definitely hurt his chances at owning the San Diego Padres, the team whose jersey he wore for 20 years and he’s currently trying to buy along with movie producer Thomas Tull.
