listen Listen: Kirk Gibson, Dbacks Manager
Gibson discusses grinding out wins, the troubles with the starting rotation and Josh Collmenter.

If you've ever wondered where Arizona Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson got his all-out mentality, one need look no further than the man who raised him.

"I'd say the biggest lesson my dad taught me was 'Whatever you do, follow it through,'" he told Arizona Sports 620's Burns and Gambo Tuesday. "'Don't be deterred, don't let anybody deter you. Get your sights set on what you're going to do and follow it through.'

"Think about it, when you do that you feel good about yourself and it kind of teaches you to persevere through some tough times."

No doubt that has helped Gibson throughout his life, as both a baseball player and manager, as well as a person in general.
