Brashler traces the career of a great baseball hitter known as "the black Babe Ruth"--from the sandlots and semi-pro teams of Pittsburgh through his debut with the Homestead Grays in 1930 to his untimely death in 1947 at age 35. 8 illustrations.
From the Publisher:
During the first half of the twentieth century, Josh Gibson was a legendary figure among black baseball players, who were barred from playing in the major leagues. Perhaps baseball's greatest hitter, Gibson was known as "the black Babe Ruth." In this illuminating biography, William Brashler introduces an authentic American sports hero and recaptures the mood and style, the excitement and poignance of a world of black baseball that has vanished from the American scene. He traces Gibson's career from the sandlots and semi-pro teams of Pittsburgh, through his debut with Homestead Grays in 1930, and on to his untimely death in 1947 at age thirty five the winter after Jackie Robinson broke through the minor leagues' color barrier. With 12 pages of black and white photographs.
