PHUCK...Bob Gibson passed away

By: coachemup!

He was 84 years old and had cancer. MONSTER pitcher and athlete. OWNED the mound and the game. After his '68 season with a record setting 1.12 era MLB lowered the mound. NEVER dig in against him or Drysdale. They would send you to your MF grave. Taught me the responsibility that pitchers had every game when I was a little kid. He threw 255 complete games in 16 or 17 years in the majors. Such a great athlete that the Harlem Globetrotters offered him a spot on their team. First Tom Seaver and Lou Brock in September now Bob Gibson. When God calls for Koufax and Vin Scully home they might as well take me too. FUCK High and tight Bob...RIP.
