Player Biography
The greatest power hitter in black baseball, Josh Gibson pounded home runs with regularity, despite playing most of his career in two of baseball’s most cavernous ballparks: Forbes Field and Griffith Stadium. Washington Senators pitcher Walter Johnson said, “Gibson could do everything – he hits the ball a mile. And he catches so easy he might just as well be in a rocking chair.” Gibson utilized a fluid, compact swing to hit for both average and power, and tales of his mammoth home runs became legendary. A larger-than-life figure, he died just three months before the integration of baseball in the major leagues in 1947.
