Happy birthday to my second favorite baseball player of all time -- Kirk Gibson, still the only man to have ever wrapped up an entire World Series with one swing of a bat -- stomach virus and injuries to both legs notwithstanding.If God and the devil ever play a baseball game to see who gets my soul and I get to pick the player who bats to settle where I will spend eternity, this is the guy I want.

If my soul is saved with a single, I'll go with Pete Rose, but if a home run is required (let's hope it's not) I'd have to go with a 2001 Barry Bonds putting my odds of salvation at over 15% (the highest ever).

Except I can just see Lucifer coming out of the dugout Billy Martin-like to protest a foreign substance in Bonds's body and then you two are both disqualified and damned for eternity. I'll stick with Gibby.
