  • Good Dusty Baker Quote on Bob Gibson

    "When I first came up, they'd assume you could hit the fastball, so they'd see if you could hit the curveball. If you could hit the curve, they'd see if you could hit the slider. If you could hit the slider, they'd see if you could hit the changeup. If you could hit the changeup, they'd say, 'OK, let's see if you can hit on your back."'

    Baker remembers going out with Hank Aaron one night after an exhibition game in St. Petersburg, Fla. Baker says the only two who ever intimidated him were his father and Gibson. He remembered taking a 17-game hitting streak into a meeting with Gibson. Baker said:

    "Hank said, 'Don't dig in against Bob Gibson. He'll knock you down. Don't stare at him. He doesn't like it. If you hit a home run, don't run too slow, don't run too fast. If you happen to want to celebrate, get in the tunnel first. And if he hits you, don't charge the mound because he's a Gold Glove boxer.'

    "I'm like, 'What about my 17-game hitting streak?' That was the night it ended."

        "Have you ever thrown a ball 100 miles an hour? Everything hurts. Even your ass hurts. I see pictures of my face and say, 'Holy shit', but that's the strain you feel when you throw. I had one of those faces you look at it, man, and say, 'Man he's an ass-hole.' Could be, depends on if you pissed me off or not."


        "Barry Bonds? I'll tell you what, if he hit a home run off (Bob) Gibson or (Don) Drysdale and stood and admired it, they'd knock that earring out of his ear the next time up." - National League Umpire Doug Harvey

        Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

          Too bad Gibby isn't around today to take care of Dusta. :( He is/was a bad mofo.

            Gibson could still kick the ass of half the major leaguers out there right now. What is he? 60?
