League: National Baseball Hall of Fame
History: Bob Gibson was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1981, ensuring that one of the game’s most dominant pitchers is forever enshrined in history. While Gibson was at one point a two-sport athlete, even playing for the Harlem Globetrotters after having played basketball at Creighton University, he chose to stick with baseball on his way to playing 17 seasons for the St. Louis Cardinals. In his time with the Cardinals Gibson won two World Series in 1964 and ’67 and claiming World Series MVP both times, winning two of the three games he started including Game 7 against the New York Yankees in ’64 and setting a World Series record as he struck out 31 hitters. In the 1967 World Series against the Boston Red Sox Gibson pitched three complete-game victories. He won nine Gold Gloves and was a nine-time All Star, and in 1968 he pitched one of the most dominant single seasons in the live-ball era, going 22-9 with an ERA of 1.12. He had 268 strikeouts, 13 shutouts, and at one point through 47 consecutive scoreless innings. He won both the National League Cy Young Award and NL MVP, the only pitcher to win NL MVP for nearly 50 years until Clayton Kershaw repeated the feat in 2014. He also set a World Series record by striking out 17 Detroit Tigers in Game 1 in 1968. Above and beyond all of that, though, Gibson and teammates Bill White and Curt Flood led a movement at the Cardinals that saw the team become the first pro sports team to desegregate in 1961. His number 45 jersey was retired by the Cardinals on September 1, 1975.
