Report: MLB Great Bob Gibson Being Treated for Cancer
According to a report by Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Dispatch, Cardinals great and MLB Hall of Famer Bob Gibson has been hospitalized as he undergoes treatment for pancreatic cancer.
Gibson was perhaps the most dominant pitcher of his era and he is widely considered the greatest pitcher in Cardinals franchise history. The 1968 season was one for the ages on the mound because of Gibson's absurd numbers. He posted a 22-9 record but it was his 1.12 ERA and 13 shutouts that stand out. Gibson won two World Series titles and two Cy Young Awards and now at the age of 83, a letter sent to the other Hall of Famers reveals he was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago.
