Career

Bibby was primarily a starting pitcher, although he also worked in relief towards the latter part of his career. He was an integral part of the 1979 Pirates team, who won the 1979 World Series.

On July 30, 1973, while with the Rangers, Bibby no-hit the Oakland Athletics at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum 6-0, the first no-hitter in franchise history (from 1961 to 1971 the franchise had been known as the Washington Senators).

On May 19, 1981, at the age of 36 with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Bibby gave up a leadoff single to the Atlanta Braves' Terry Harper, then was perfect for the remainder of the game, proceeding to retire the next 27 straight batters. He pitched nine innings for the 5-0 shutout. On top of that he hit two doubles, going 2 for 3, and drove in a run and scored a run.

Personal

Bibby is the oldest brother of basketball player Henry Bibby and uncle of current NBA player Mike Bibby. He is married to Jacqueline Ann (Jordan) Bibby and has two daughters, Tamara Bibby of Washington, DC and Tanya Bibby (McClain) of Charlotte, NC.
