U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after the death of Omaha native and baseball Hall of Famer Bob Gibson.
“Bob Gibson will always be one of baseball’s all-time greats — one of Omaha’s too. At the height of the Civil Rights Movement in our country, Bob Gibson proved to be a fierce competitor whose life on and off the field exemplified Nebraska’s trademarks of grit and hard work. Melissa and I lift up the Gibson family tonight in our prayers.”
