St. Louis Cardinals

All Time RH Pitcher

Bob Gibson

1959 - 1975

When MLB went about selecting its All Century Team, The Sporting News (long time based in St. Louis) selected an all time St. Louis Cardinals team--one that would give the all time MLB team a good contest.

Winner of two Cy Young Awards and one Most Valuable Player Award, Bob Gibson won 251 games for the Cardinals during his career. He was regarded as one of the most intimidating pitchers of all time, and forcefully claimed owership of the inside corner--he'd plunk his own mother if he felt she was crowding the plate.

World Series time increased Gibson's intensity, and he compiled a 7 - 2 record in nine starts (with eight being complete games). With an ERA of 1.89 and 92 strikeouts over 81 innings, Gibson dominated in the Fall classic. One memorable record came in Game 1 of the 1968 Series when he struck out 17 Detroit Tigers.
