TTM Mailday: Luis Gonzalez

I sent out these three cards to Luis Gonzalez on 6/8/15 and got them back today, 6/20/15.

Gonzo is a fan favorite among D-Backs fans. He leads the Diamondbacks in almost every all-time offensive category including games played, home runs, doubles, singles, total bases, hits, and runs.

He was the first Diamondbacks player to have his number retired. Randy Johnson's number will be retired in July.

Even when he gets passed as the D-Backs all-time leader, presumably by Paul Goldschmidt, Gonzalez will forever be a part of D-Backs history for his role in the 2001 World Series. His bloop single of Mariano Rivera in the bottom of the 9th inning of Game 7 provided the winning RBI.
