Happy Anniversary Bob Gibson!!!

Happy Anniversary Bob Gibson!!!

On this day in 1968, Bob Gibson struck out 17 batters in Game 1 of the World Series against the Detroit Tigers.  This is a World Series record that still stands today.

To be on the biggest stage in baseball and dominate the way he did shows how superior he was as a pitcher and competitor.

The full stat line from Gibson’s game looks like this – 9 innings pitched, 5 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk, 17 strikeout, WIN.

Happy Anniversary Mr. Gibson!!!
