Yes,exactly 52 years after his still World Series record 17 strikeouts against Denny McLain and the Tigers in the 1968 Fall Classic first game,Bob Gibson,84,succumbed to pancreatic cancer yesterday. "Hoot" or " Gibby," as the 1981 first-ballot MLB Hall-Of-Famer was called,had plenty of accomplishments in his 17-year career,but along with his modern N.L.-record 1.12 ERA in '68,"The Year Of The Pitcher," my other favourite Bob Gibson fact is that in '68 and '69,Gibson completed FIFTY-SIX of SIXTY-NINE starts,logging 618 2/3 innings in those two seasons.In other words,had Gibson retired seven more batters,he would have AVERAGED A NINE-INNING COMPLETE GAME OVER TWO YEARS.In an era in which a pitcher is feted for going seven innings,it is safe to say no hurler will approach this iron-man feat. RIP,"Hoot!!!"
