Your favorite player. All-time.

Recommended Posts

Why not? We have no new baseball so let's reminisce. 

My favorite player of all time is Kirk Gibson. While I am a Sox fan, i did grow up in LA. And my love for baseball was starting to blossom in 1988. 

So why Gibson? I loved his hustle, his energy, his grit, and his ability to be clutch. He was the player i most emulated playing ball with my friends, ESPECIALLY after he showed Eck what time it was in Game 1 of the 88 series.

So, who's your guy?

Did you guys see Topps is releasing a set of new cards but in the old school 70's format?

They do the Topps Heritage each year and they’re awesome (psst I started a Cards Thread in Off Topic. Got back in collecting with my son).

Grew up watching Piazza but I saw David Wright’s entire career. I teared up during his last speech after his last game. Those are my two favorite. My three favorite non Mets players are Barry bonds, Mariano Rivera, and Chipper Jones
