    He was an excellent hoopster at Creighton and briefly was with the Harlem Globetrotters.

    BTW, if you're dreaming big for what Hunter Greene could be, Bob Gibson is the template for that. Didn't really get established until he was 25, but then he went on a 13-year run where he averaged 18-11, 2.70, 137 ERA+. Sometimes domination takes time.

    We found our Bob Gibson 50 years ago. But pitching a 22 year old rookie in a 4 man rotation for a half a season nipped that in the bud and Wayne Simpson never recovered.

    Sure, but who knew Bruce Berenyi was just the next Mike de la Hoz?

    Every time I see the name Hunter Greene, I think it’s a housing development or a golf course.

    I hope so. Bob Gibson pitched more innings by the end of May each year than Greene has the entire time since he was a Jr. in High School.

    When I was in college, I worked n a Hardware store that sold Ceiling Fans. Hunter Green was the most popular color.

    This was on yesterday, a conversation with Bob Gibson and a conversation with Gibson and Reggie Jackson. Despite it being a public radio show and therefore somewhat of a letdown because the producers expect their audience doesn't really get sports ;-), it's really cool to hear Gibson still blaming hitters for getting plunked that many years after retiring. And Reggie Jackson is always a treat to listen to.

    Gibson's 1968 season was just before my time as a baseball fan, but those stats he put up that year are truly mind blowing. A 1.12 ERA is just crazy! A truly great pitcher who could intimidate the best of hitters. RIP Bob Gibson.

    I recall Gibson from the 1964, 67, and 68 World Series. He threw a lot of baseball in those three series and was fun to watch.

    In the NPR interviews posted by SunDeck he describes the ninth inning of Game 7 of the 1964 Series. He was tired and allowed two homers but nailed down the win. After he retired, Gibby was always a very engaging interview. RIP.
