Some Baseball Notes

November 29, 2017

During the telecast of the deciding game of the 1986 ALCS, won by the Boston Red Sox over the California Angels, the pretty dramatic game 5, 1984 World Series home run by Kirk Gibson was shown as part of the baseball promotion.

That home run off then San Diego Padres’ pitcher, Rich Gossage, (“G” vs “G”) wrapped up the Tigers’ virtual wire to wire, 1984 title, their fourth and most recent.

In the next even year, 1988 Gibson struck an even more dramatic blow vs another Hall of Fame pitcher, then Oakland Athletics’ pitcher, Dennis Eckersley.

His 2 out, 2 run home run (B9) in game 1 of the 1988 World Series, transformed a one run L.A. Dodgers deficit into a game one victory.

L.A. went on to win the ’88 W.S. for their sixth and still most recent title.

 

A player with great impact and to me more deserving of “Hall” status than some who are in there, Kirk Gibson pictured above.
