Happy Birthday, Kirk
Kirk Gibson was born today in 1957. He's not one of my favorite players; it's not that I don't like him, it's that he never played for a team I like - in fact, played most of his career for a team I don't like at all.
But his home run in 1988 off Dennis Eckersley in Game 1 of the World Series is one of the all-time great moments in sports.
So, Happy Birthday, Kirk.
