Bob Gibson speaks while Joe Torre, Bill White and Tim McCarver look on.

Omaha Unveils Bob Gibson Statue (Bonus Kansas City Baseball Vault Audio)

How about a bonus Kansas City Baseball Vault episode?

While most of our time is focused on the Royals, we’re not limited to the big league team and its affiliates. We’re still baseball fans overall. So when we were contacted about an event in Omaha to unveil a statue of Bob Gibson (Omaha native), we wanted to check in.

So to help us cover the event at the Storm Chasers Werner Park, we sent Kings of Kauffman’s Mike Vamosi and Hunter Samuels to check out the festivities.

Included in this episode, you’ll hear from Hall of Famer Bob Gibson, Tim McCarver, Joe Torre, and Bill White during a press conference/banquet and then there’s more from the statue unveiling ceremony itself the following day.
