NEW YORK (AP) -- Nearly a quarter-century later, Kirk Gibson is getting a different kind of reception in New York.
A month into his second full season as manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Gibson recalled how fans reacted at Shea Stadium when he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the NL championship series.
"For some reason I had a reflection of when I snapped my hamstring off the back of my leg in the playoffs and everybody gave me a standing ovation because I was hurt," he said before Sunday's game against the Mets at Citi Field. "Now, all of a sudden, they want my autograph. I said, 'Remember, your parents used to boo me.'"
