By most accounts the all-time scariest and most intimidating pitcher for a batter to face.
In the 64 WS: “Gibson pitched 27 innings in three Series games. One of the starts went eight innings but his second went 10 as he won Game Five, 5-2. Then he came back on two days’ rest and worked a complete-game 7-5 win in Game Seven.”
Sandy Koufax and Bob Gibson. Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax. Sandy Koufax got exactly the credit he deserved, but as much praise as Bob Gibson received, he was still undervalued.
So many of the greats of my youth are passing lately. I thought Gibby would live forever. Too tough to die. RIP Gibby.
