That's not just lip service from Gwynn, who is batting cancer in his salivary gland. ThePadres legend returned to his job as San Diego State's baseball coach this season and made his first trip to Dodger Stadium to see his son, Tony Gwynn Jr., play with his new team.
However, Gwynn says he's improving.

I plan on being around here for a while."For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
