This One Time, When I Was A Royal...Kirk Gibson Edition

Kirk Gibson is a player that should have had a nickname...but according to Baseball Almanac he didn't have one...Let me propose one, The Wolverine...well, maybe not, Kirk went to Michigan State so that would be a problem...I guess the obvious one would be Captain Kirk...okay, let's go with that one...

The Captain spent one season with the Royals [1991] and played the most games [132] than he would in any of his last seven seasons. He also had respectable numbers 16 homers and 69 RBI...but the love affair with KC was short lived as he headed next to Pittsburgh for a season before returning to his rightful home with the Tigers until he retired.
