* Stats from '97 and '98 seasons missing from archives

Tony Gwynn was often overshadowed by his larger than life teammates Babe Ruth and Albert Belle, but the ultra professional Gwynn knew his role and could always be counted on to set the table for the two sluggers. Although never considered a superstar during his time in the Weaver League, Tony Gwynn did put up some good numbers during his career. Despite injuries that caused him to miss about 20 percent of his teams games he still managed to average 166 hits and 79 runs scored during his five seasons.

For all the runs the Rastas could score they were always done in by bad pitching, and Gwynn was never able to lead his team to the playoffs. He was traded to the defending Barnes Division champion Sicily Godfathers during the 2001 season, but he came up just short of making the playoffs as they finished five games behind Belfast. Gwynn retired after that season having never played in the Weaver postseason, but got some consolation five years later when he was elected as the fifth member of the Weaverball Hall of Fame in 2006.
