3. Bob Gibson

When on the field from early spring through late fall, Baseball Hall of Famer Bob Gibson didn’t only have to contend with great ball hitters. The pitcher was also staring down hay fever symptoms.

 

Apparently he had a pretty ferocious stare! Gibson, who played his entire 17-year career with the St. Louis Cardinals, accumulated 3,117 strikeouts, won two Cy Young Awards and was a member of two World Series championship teams  --  all achieved during allergy season.

Bob Gibson was a fierce competitor who rarely smiled; instead he would make aggressive faces while on the mound, which he later attributed to allergy symptoms.
