    When Steve Carlton was being introduced at his Hall of Fame induction, Carlton was described as 'having the best slider in major league history.' Gibson pushed his way up to the microphone and said 'Correction. The best left handed slider.'
    When Gibson was having a bad outing, catcher Tim McCarver came up to the mound to give him a pep talk. As soon as he reached the mound, Gibson said 'Get your ass back in the catcher's box, McCarver ... the only thing you know about pitching is that you can't hit it.'
    He had a childhood filled with health problems, including rickets, asthma, pneumonia and a heart murmur.

    He was one of the greatest World Series pitchers, with seven consecutive wins and 17 strikeouts in a game.

    When asked about the Pete Rose Hall of Fame controversy, he stated 'He absolutely should be in. He had an obligation to hit ... he was to hitting what Richard Nixon was to lying.'
