Gibson vs. Jackson

Check out this interview with Bob Gibson and Reggie Jackson on their recent book "Sixty Feet Six Inches." Interesting stuff.

Gibson talks about "training the hitter" by throwing in on him, or the fact that he didn't believe in taking a player down just for hitting a home run, but he would hit him for hitting his best pitch in the best spot.

So much for "beat my best."

  1. I tried my hardest to read this book and found that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get passed Reggie Jackson and (what I perceived to be) his ego coming through in every comment. And this is coming from a Yankees fan who grew up as a kid watching the Bronx Zoo Yankees. LOL.
