Kirk Gibson and Alan Trammel were back in Detroit as the Manager and Bench Coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight. It was good to see the boys, but it was interesting that Tram was the Bench Coach and Gibby was in charge. For so long, including his time in Detroit Tram was believed to be the next great Sparky descendant. It turns out that Gibby is the great leader of men. I love them both, but really wish they would lose while in town.
Check out this Kirk Gibson commercial from the 80's, it is so unlike him that it is hilarious.
The commercial also shows how close Gibby was to becoming a HUGE star. Too bad he was injured so often or he would have been the Reggie Jackson of his era.
