‘Evening With Bob Gibson’: A Cardinals Cash Grab?

Moments ago, an e-mail came through to the Cards Diaspora inbox with the subject: “An Evening With Bob Gibson”. Gibby? One of the all time greats? We’d like to have an evening with Bob Gibson.

Q&A: Pete LaCock vs Bob Gibson

Pete LaCock is a good storyteller. The former first baseman is prone to embellishment — Retrosheet doesn’t see eye-to-eye to with some of his recollections — but his tales are certainly entertaining. The son of long-time Hollywood Squares host Peter Marshall, LaCock played for the Chicago Cubs (1972-1976), for the Kansas City Royals (1977-1980) and for the Yokohama Taiyo Whales...

Orel Hershiser and Bob Gibson: Opposite ends of the autograph spectrum

During Thanksgiving I got an early Christmas present when my sister gave me this autographed ball of Orel Hershiser. My sister works in the financial industry and she met Hershiser at a conference.
