Ticket Stub #12 – Padres vs. Marlins – 04/22/1996

Ticket Stub #12 – Padres vs. Marlins – 04/22/1996

Miami, FL – Joe Robbie Stadium

Padres 5, Marlins 3

I got the opportunity to see Rickey Henderson live and I jumped at it!!!  I had seen him play in several Spring Training games, but to watch him play in a regular season game was great.  His approach at the plate and desire to beat the competition was one of my favorite attributes of Rickey’s play.  Too bad, he went 0-for-4….

I also got to see Gary Sheffield hit a home run which was pretty impressive.  I’ve always been in awe of Sheffield at the plate, and I can honestly say that over the course of his career if I caught a game on TV in which he was at bat I stopped to watch EVERY time.  He is immensely talented, and his bat speed is out of this world.

Hall of famers in this game – Rickey Henderson(???) & Gary Sheffield(???) 

1987 Topps Andre Dawson

1987 Topps Andre Dawson

This is an awesome card.  The vintage look really works with the image of Dawson in the old Expos uniform.  The funny thing about the 1987 Topps issue is that for some cards it works and for some it tanked!!  For me, this card is a winner!!! 

Happy Birthday Bob Gibson!!!

Happy 73rd Birthday Mr. Gibson!!!

Bob Gibson is considered to be one of the nastiest(in a good way) pitchers in the history of the game.  With a career record of 251-174, with 3,117 strikeouts and a 2.91 ERA, Gibson cemented himself as a dominant pitcher for 17 years as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals.

A 2-time World Series champion, Gibson saved his best performances for baseball’s biggest stage – The World Series.  Gibson’s career postseason record is 7-2, with 8 complete games.  His outings are legendary as he recorded 92 strikeouts in 9 games while only allowing 1.89 runs per game.

Happy Birthday Mr. Gibson!!!
