I'm sure the Padre fan here Smile will appreciate this article from MLB.com, a look back at the 1994 season in MLB before it abruptly came to an end in August of that year.

Howard Cole's column also talked about Ted Williams and the 1941 season in his article about Cody. Like they say, people don't expect even a great player to hit .400 because it's almost impossible in today's game. Tony Gwynn was a joy for everyone to watch over 20 years and we will always wonder if he would have done it. Cole's article is here

Thanks for the articles. I sure do remember that year, 1994, and how excited my son was (he was just 8 then) when we explained what it means to hit .400. What a disappointing end to that ride. It seems pretty much general consensus it will not ever happen again.
