1974 Headline – “Welcome To The 3,000 K’s Club, Mr. Gibson”

On this day in 1974, Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals became just the second pitcher in major league history to record 3,000 strikeouts in his career.

Joining Walter Johnson, Gibson reached this milestone 51 years after Johnson was the first pitcher to claim 3,000.

Gibson’s 3,000th victim was Cesar Geronimo of the Cincinnati Reds.

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary Mr. Gibson!!!
