Watch you from ’64 all the way to ’70. Watch you through two 45 Bob Gibson 1935 – 2020 St. Louis Cardinals thank you for the memories shirt, battles with Drysdale, Kofax, Tom Seaver, hit home runs, play defense. It was quite a treat to see you on the mound. As a lifetime Pittsburgh Pirate fan, I got to watch or hear the game when Bob Gibson pitched. Roberto Clemente hit a line shot off of Gibson’s leg and stayed in to face three more batters. He found out later he had a broken tibia. In August of 1971 at Three Rivers Stadium, he hurled a no-hitter. There had not been a no-hitter pitched in Pittsburgh at Forbes Field 1909 to 1970, the first one in a long long time if ever. Ironically Willie Stargell was at the plate in the ninth inning and the Pirate fans were cheering for Gibson’s to get Willie out. He command respect when he was on the mound being a remarkable pitcher. In 1968 before the mound change, Pirate pitcher Steve Blass had a break-out year only to come in second because of Bob Gibson. Rest In Peace Bob and thank you for the baseball memories.

When they have to change the dimensions of a sport because in part to their sheer dominance 45 Bob Gibson 1935 – 2020 St. Louis Cardinals thank you for the memories shirt, you realize how great of a pitcher he was. RIP to another legend. Bob Gibson was an unbelievable force of nature and competitor. Like the stories I hear about how much he wanted to win like there was a time in the 60s were Gibson was if cards needed a win Gibson would almost always come out on top. World series es he was even better just ask any of the red Sox from 67 or tigers of 68 he may have been on losing end of game 7 that year but still pitched a beauty. Rip Bob, I may have been born way after u retired but you were one of the all-time greats.
