Associated Press Published 6:03 AM EDT Jul 14, 2019 St. Louis — St. Louis Cardinals great Bob Gibson is fighting pancreatic cancer. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch said the 83-year-old Hall of Famer was diagnosed with the cancer several weeks ago and revealed the news Saturday to the other living Hall of Famers. Gibson went 2-1 against the Detroit Tigers in the 1968 World Series. He was 7-2 in nine World Series starts in his career. Gibson’s longtime agent, Dick Zitzmann, told the Post-Dispatch that Gibson has visited the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and has been hospitalized in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, for the past two weeks. Zitzmann said chemotherapy is likely to begin Monday in Omaha. Gibson was 251-174 with a 2.91 ERA in 17 seasons with the Cardinals from 1959 to 1975. The right-hander led St. Louis to World Series titles in 1964 and 1967, and the National League pennant in 1968.
