Bob Gibson played 17-plus seasons with the Cardinals, winning 20 games five times over that span and establishing himself as the very definition of intimidation, competitiveness and dignity. One of the best athletes to ever play the game, he posted a 1.12 ERA in 1968, the lowest figure since 1914, and a factor in convincing baseball officials to lower the pitching mound the next year. Known as a premier big-game pitcher, Gibson posted World Series records of seven consecutive wins and 17 strikeouts in a game, both of which remain unbroken. Ken Regan was born and grew up in the Bronx. He studied journalism at Columbia and attended New York University's Film School. His photography career began in the sports arena where he covered the World Series, Super Bowls, the Olympics, heavyweight championship fights, Hockey, Basketball, Tennis, Auto Racing and other professional sports for Time, Sports Illustrated, Life, and Newsweek. Among the athletes that Ken spent time photographing are names like Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Hank Aaron and Wilt Chamberlain, Joe Namath and Mario Andretti. By the late Eighties, Ken had over 200 magazine covers to his credit.
