Bob Gibson was the coolest baseball player ever - A Hunt and Peck

Jon Bois said so, so it must be true

2014 Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Bob Gibson was known for being a tremendous athlete. His ability obviously carried him far in baseball, but his prowess on the basketball court has been well-documented. A great Gibby story comes from his time as a Harlem Globetrotter. Jon Bois, a writer at SB Nation, recently tweeted out the great anecdote and called Gibson "the coolest baseball player who ever lived..."

And he is totally right.
