RIP Bob Gibson

Bob Gibson lost his battle with pancreatic cancer Friday.

One of baseball’s greatest pitchers and fiercest competitors is gone.

He was unrelenting, unapologetic, mean, and fabulous on the field.

There was not an ounce of BS in him, and baseball has truly lost an icon.

From Ghetto to Glory and Stranger to the Game are must-read books for baseball (and Gibson) fans.

Bob, if there’s one game to win, and I need a right-handed starter, you get the ball.

Rest in peace, Bob. I loved watching you pitch and compete.
