Bob Gibson’s 1968 Season Was Magical!!!
Bob Gibson’s 1968 season was one that makes players into legends. His performance from the start of the season through the entire schedule and playoffs included is one of the most talked about and heralded seasons by a pitcher in major league history.
Let’s get right into the numbers: 34 starts, 22-9 record, 28 complete games, 13 shutouts, 268 strikeouts, just 62 walks, and the tiniest of ERA’s – 1.12.
Gibson took that dominance and rung up both the National League’s Cy Young and Most Valuable Player Awards. And nobody could complain about that…
