Reggie Jackson, Bob Gibson Slug It Out

What do you get when you combine a champion pitcher with a five-time World Series slugger? Bob Gibson and Reggie Jackson duke it out in their new book Sixty Feet, Six Inches.

Baseball legends Reggie Jackson and Bob Gibson are pictured here during retirement wearing the colors of the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals, respectively.

Record-Breaking Pitcher Bob Gibson

The former Cardinal was a record-breaking baseball player in the 1960's, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981. He's just written his autobiography, which explores his rise from the Omaha projects to the major leagues, and being an early black ballplayer. The book is called "Stranger to the Game."
