Josh Gibson

Catcher and Power Hitter

Series: Stars of the Negro Leagues

By Hallie Murray

Josh Gibson, sometimes known as the "black Babe Ruth" for his skill at bat, was a power hitter and catcher in the Negro Leagues. He played on the Homestead Grays and Pittsburgh Crawfords between 1930 and 1946. Gibson died tragically from a brain tumor in 1947, just months before Jackie Robinson broke the baseball color barrier. Though he was never able to join an MLB team due to discrimination, Gibson is often considered to have been one of the best catchers and sluggers in baseball's history.
