Bob Gibson = World Series Hero

Bob Gibson = World Series Hero

While Gibson played on some pretty poor Cardinals teams during the begining and end of his career, he also starred on their dominant squads that played in the mid 1960′s.

And during a span of 5 seasons, Gibson and his Cardinals teammates competed for 3 World Series championships – winning 2 of them.

And in those 3 match-ups, Gibson was unstoppable!!

Competing in 9 contests, Gibson went 7-2, while throwing an incredible 8 complete games including 2 shutouts.  His ERA in World Series play is a low 1.89.  And in 81 innings of work, Gibson struck out 92 batters while walking just 17.

It is no wonder that the Cardinals won the 1964 and 1967 World Series.  And it is also no wonder that Gibson collected the World Series MVP trophy in each of those triumphs!!
