The July edition of the Local Sports Journal magazine features a profile of Cam Gibson, who came to the West Michigan Whitecaps this season with a ton of expectations, not only because he was a very good baseball player at Michigan State University, but because he’s the son of Detroit Tigers great Kirk Gibson.
The young ballplayer talks about what it’s like to break into pro baseball, how it felt to be drafted by the Tigers, how much he has learned from his famous father, and how he yearns to make his own mark in baseball as “the first Cam Gibson, not the next Kirk Gibson.”
The July edition also includes a story about the NBA draft drama surrounding former Muskegon High School basketball star Deyonta Davis; a wrap-up of the West Michigan Ironmen’s successful but strange first season of indoor football; the story of Muskegon Mustangs quarterback Aaron James’ professional football career in Europe; and a history of Marsh Field as it celebrates its 100th anniversary.
