Bob Gibson----Good Read on Gibby … 0419f.html

Thanks for that. Gibby was my first baseball hero. Daddy was a Cardinal fan and he taught me to be one. I eventually became a Royals fan, but I’ve never forgotten those Cardinal teams of the late 60s.

Big hero for me as a kid, too. But I’m a die hard Cardinal fan, listening as a kid on the transistor at night to KMOX, Carey and Buck. Cardinal and white, Hogs and Cardinals.

Thanks for the Bob Gibson article. I’m only a couple years younger than he is and been a long time Cardinals fan. I was in Vietnam on my third tour in the Fall of 1968 during that World Series. Nevertheless, I was routing for the Cards.
