LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hall of Fame outfielder Tony Gwynn says he’s doing “good” seven months after revealing that he has cancer in a salivary gland.

Gwynn underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatment, and he said his test results have come back OK. He says he plans on being around for a while.

The former Padres outfielder recently wrapped up another season as baseball coach at San Diego State. He said Tuesday that his energy level was an issue early in the season, but he improved as the season wore on.

In October, Gwynn announced he had cancer and he said he was concerned that it could be linked to his career-long practice of using chewing tobacco.
