Tony Gwynn Lifetime Achievement Award Bestowed Upon Greg Hamilton

Congratulations to 2018 Peterborough & District Sports Hall of Fame inductee Greg Hamilton after Baseball America named him the 2022 Tony Gwynn Award recipient.

The Tony Gwynn Award is a lifetime achievement award Baseball America gives annually for lasting contributions to the game. The award is named after Gwynn, who not only had a Hall of Fame playing career but was also a successful coach at his alma mater of San Diego State.

According to Baseball America’s profile of Greg Hamilton and his outstanding career, “Hamilton has worked with Baseball Canada for three decades, and since taking over the men’s national team programs 23 years ago, he has transformed the junior program, helped lead the senior team to two Pan Am gold medals, created a community across a country and built a family among multiple generations of players.”

“It would be hard to overstate the impact that Greg Hamilton has had on baseball in Canada, and the ripple effect he has created beyond his country’s borders.”
