Kevin Gibbs in AA Co Hall of Fame

    Baseball and track and field will take center stage during the 25th annual Anne Arundel County Sports Hall of Fame banquet as all five inductees participated in those two sports.
    Dean Albany, Kevin Gibbs and Neal Herrick all made their marks on the diamond while Gerald Johnson and Bruce Reid both excelled at running the oval.
    The Class of 2015 will be enshrined during a ceremony on Oct. 14 at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie.
    Gibbs was a standout at St. John's High, where he was coached by his father Ed. A first team All-Metro selection by the Washington Post as a junior and senior, Gibbs was drafted by the Boston Red Sox out of high school.
    The Davidsonville resident accepted a scholarship to Old Dominion and became a two-time Division I All-American. The switch-hitting outfielder set a school and Colonial Athletic Association record by compiling a .436 batting average in 1994.
    Gibbs was a sixth-round choice of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1995 MLB Draft and elected to skip his senior season at Old Dominion. He played 10 seasons of professional baseball and was an All-Star at every level, reaching Triple-A on three different occasions.
