Kirk Gibson is throwing a Fiesta

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson is getting a parade!

Well, not his own parade. But the skipper will get his grand marshal on and participate in the coin toss before the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix on Jan. 2.

Gibson played college football at Michigan State, but apparently "NL Manager of the Year alumni" isn't a category in the BCS computer formula.
