Gibson, one of the fiercest competitors in baseball history, played 17 seasons in the majors, all with the St. Louis Cardinals. Before joining the Cardinals, he played basketball for the Harlem Globetrotters, as he had been a successful college player at Creighton. During his career, Gibson was selected to nine All-Star teams (1962, '62, '65-'70 and '72), won nine Gold Gloves (1965-'73), two Cy Young Awards (1968 & '70) and the 1968 National League M.V.P. He separated himself from his peers in World Series play, winning the World Series M.V.P. in 1964 and '67. In nine World Series starts, he was 7-2 with 8 complete games, a 1.89 E.R.A and 92 strikeouts. His 1.12 E.R.A. in 1968 is the lowest by any pitcher since 1914. In 1974, Gibson became the second pitcher to accumulate 3,000 career strikeouts and he finished his career with a 251-174 record and 3,117 strikeouts. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1981.
