Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jerry Dean "Jake" Gibbs (born November 7, 1938 in Grenada, Mississippi), is a former Major League Baseball player who played for the New York Yankees as a platoon catcher from 1962 to 1971. His strong hit record in 1968 earned him the nickname "Dead-Eye" Gibbs. An All-American quarterback at the University of Mississippi, Gibbs decided instead to go pro in baseball despite being drafted by the AFL's Houston Oilers and NFL's Cleveland Browns in 1961. He played his final game on September 29, 1971.show more
