He was one of my first sports heroes and ended up being one of my favorite people. He'd tell me stories about Gibson, Aaron, and Mays. I loved those stories. Jimmy Wynn was a kind, sweet man. I know he's got a tee-time in heaven today. Rest In Peace my Dear Friend.
Today, #Houston lost a true legend of the game. Jimmy Wynn played baseball and led our team for many years. We were fortunate to see him when we broke ground on renovations at the Urban Youth Academy. Tonight, I say a prayer that God welcomes Jimmy into His heavenly kingdom.
RIP, Toy Cannon. Jimmy Wynn died Thursday at the age of 78. He will be forever remembered in the hearts of Astros fans. #khou MORE: https://www.khou.com/article/sports/mlb/astros/astros-legend-jimmy-toy-cannon-wynn-dead-at-78/285-26e23a61-3397-49cc-a6f8-45517fffebcd …
RIP to one of the very best, Jimmy Wynn. The Toy Cannon was a wonderful person and a great friend, as he was to many. I greatly appreciate all the times spent with him and everything he taught me about the Astros and Colt .45s. I recently completed a painting dedicated to him.
