TBT: Sparky inspires Gibby with “He don’t wanna walk you”

0

It was Game 5 of the 1984 World Series. San Diego Padres future-HOFer Goose Gossage is on the mound, and up to bat steps Kirk Gibson. This was the deciding game of the series, in which the Tigers capped a magnificent season, but Gibby’s home run was the cherry on top. Before the at-bat, watch as Sparky Anderson gives Gibby a little bit of inspiration, and Gibby does the rest.
