Happy Reds birthday, Rob Dibble!

Dibble

January 24, 1964

Known as much for his temper tantrums as his pitching prowess, Rob Dibble was a hard-throwing righty, part of Cincinnati’s “Nasty Boys” bullpen. Dibble was a two-time All-Star for the Reds in 1990 and 1991, and was named the 1990 NLCS MVP as he struck out ten Pittsburgh batters in four games. He allowed his temper to get the best of him too often though, and even got into a fistfight with manager Lou Piniella in the Reds clubhouse. He threw at batters and runners during games, and he has occasionally gotten into hot water in his second career as a broadcaster because of off-the-cuff comments.
