George C. "Mooney" Gibson
Birth: Jul. 22, 1880
Death: Jan. 25, 1967

Major League Baseball Player. Also known as 'Moon.' A native of London, Ontario, he made his major league debut on July 2, 1905, and played his final game thirteen years later on, August 20, 1918. Gibson played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1905 to 1915, and for the New York Giants from 1917 to 1918.

In 1958, Gibson became the first Canadian baseball player to be named to the Canadina Sports Hall of Fame, and in 1987 he was posthumously inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.
