                      One thing that I appreciate about this video is that it's honest in how you can't really look at the history of men's sports in America, or look at America in general, without the presence of racism pervading it.

But it also stung because we are both IU alumni, and that part of him wanting to go to IU and being refused because of his race I didn’t know and really pissed me off... Gibson’s 2.44 era in 66 is amazing considering the amount of innings he pitched. But the 1968 season is the most dominant pitching season ever. A season ERA of 1.12 in the 60’s is just beyond words.... I know a lot of people say Nolan Ryan is the greatest but Bob Gibson was what made St. Louis title town in the second half of the 60’s... They had a solid lineup but Gibson was a force... I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this documentary.
