Arizona Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall sat across the desk from Kirk Gibson in the visiting manager’s office four weeks ago, as the team had just won back-to-back games to open a series against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park to move into a tie for the National League West lead.
“‘I told him, ‘Wait until the talent (in the farm system) comes up,'” Hall said.
“Gibby looked at me and said, ‘We have talent. It’s called heart.'”
You know Gibson’s ties to the Dodgers. And the ones that Hall once had.
Ten of the players on the Diamondbacks’ current 25-man roster weren’t around when Arizona opened its season in Colorado on April 1.
