Joe Gibson (ジョー・ギブソン Jyoo Gibuson?) is Goro Shigeno's goal adversary in the MAJOR series. He was the last opponent Shigeharu Honda faced during the fated match, resulting in Shigeharu's accidental death and becoming Goro's drive to settling things with him one day on the field.

Since the Deadball incident, Gibson carries the heavy burden of atonement by giving Goro a chance to beam him back.


Gibson first appears as a young blonde adult while sporting a ponytail. In season 3, he shorts off the ponytail to be a mature man with a goatee.


Gibson was introduced as a famous American pitcher, coming to play in Japan.
