Bob Gibson Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away

Bob Gibson Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Bob Gibson.

Cardinals’ Hall-of-Fame pitcher Bob Gibson died Friday night in Omaha, Nebraska, under hospice care after fighting pancreatic cancer for more than a year, according to the @stltoday. Gibson was 84.

Yadi on the passing of Bob Gibson: “The game is a game. You can lose a game but when you lose a guy like Bob Gibson, it’s just hard. I wish his family the best. We lost another one, Cardinal Nation lost another one.”

I remember as a kid someone asked me if i had one game to win, which pitcher would i choose, and i came across his statistics and asked “how is Bob Gibson not the greatest pitcher of all time”….

And i still feel the same way today….

R.I.P.

The first baseball game I went to was the St Louis Cardinals in 1967. I was 7 years old. My dad bought me a bat to take in case I could get a player to sign it. I did find one very kind player to do so – Bob Gibson. I’ve never forgotten that moment. I still have the bat.

Old Time Baseball:
‘He retired after 1975, humiliated in his final appearance when he gave up a grand slam home run to the Chicago Cubs’ Pete LaCock. (When the two faced off a decade later, at an old-timers game, Gibson beaned him).’ #BobGibson

Oh no, Bob Gibson RIP. There are people that, rightfully, argue Koufax as the most dominating pitcher of the modern era, but Gibby is right there with him. Just an amazing pitcher. And he could hit too.

Now Bob Gibson enters heaven, as 2020 continues its relentlessness. I don’t recall seeing Gibson pitch at Wrigley Field, but do remember his fearsomeness in the ‘67 and ‘68 World Series. One of the 6-7 mightiest arms and wind-ups ever.

My sincere condolences to the family & fans of Bob Gibson. The most feared pitcher of all time, who was beloved for his intensity and competitive spirit. A true baseball legend, who will never be forgotten and serves as the measure for every generation of MLB pitchers.

I met Bob Gibson once and it was quite memorable. It was the mid 90’s at a card show in S.F. As he was signing a baseball for me I told him I had seen him pitch when I was growing up in St. Louis. He immediately glared at me with those intimidating eyes.

Devastating to wake to news that the greatest living cardinal, the greatest cardinal pitcher, and a fascinating icon: Bob Gibson has died. He seemed so utterly cool and decent. 2020 is the pits. #STLCards

There are great players. Then there are those special few. The Immortals. Bob Gibson was one of those. Unmatched competitor. The classic, dominating “big game” pitcher. RIP.

RIP Bob Gibson. One of the most fierce MLB pitchers in history. Tough losing Gibson & Lou Brock less than a month apart.

A tweet about Bob Gibson’s death was just below this tweet on the feed and I couldn’t help but think about the difference between these two icons of the game.

Lol:

“Tim McCarver: “I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the plate where I belonged and that the only thing I knew about pitching was that I couldn’t hit it.”

Too many thoughts and feelings thinking about one of the most remarkable people I ever interviewed, the great Bob Gibson. Rest in peace. For now, here’s the Baseball 100 story I wrote about him

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
