I was about to say that Gibbon was a lefty, then I looked at the picture again.

Duh.

Not Gibbon.

Here's a hint: This is a Spring Training photo, he wasn't with the Bucs yet. In fact, he didn't make his Pirate debut til SIXTEEN years after this pic was snapped.

Then that could only be Dave Roberts.

Ding! Sisyphus wins.

Dave A. Roberts was acquired from the Phillies in 1964, worked his way up the system, then went to the Padres in the 1968 expansion draft. Returned to the Pirates in 1979 in the Bill Madlock trade with the Giants. Sold to the Mariners in early 1980.

I sure didn't know Roberts started in our organization. He was in one of my all-time fave Pirates games growing up.. 14 innings vs. the Padres.
San Diego had used all their position players so relief pitcher John D'Aquisto batted for himself with the bases loaded.
Roberts threw three balls.. one more and the Pods win..

Dave Roberts threw three strikes to get out of the inning. I was cheering from the top bunk of a bunk bed in the middle of
the night in Missouri, listening to crackly KDKA. Can't remember if we won or lost but Bill Robinson blasted three homeruns.
