You'll recall that during the All-Star Game MLB made no mention of Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, who recently passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. Gwynn's dominating absence led many to wonder why MLB didn't run some kind of "in memoriam" video, not unlike what is done during the Oscars telecast, during, say, the seventh inning stretch of the All-Star Game.

What would such a video look like? Thankfully, Sully Baseball (@SullyBaseball) has put one together to give us an idea ...

Well done. Here's hoping MLB takes the cue and starts doing something like this each year at the Midsummer Classic.
