Josh Gibson: A Life in the Negro Leagues

Synopsis

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 the 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. 'Brashler has put together a balanced account that, while deflating some of the apocryphal tales of Gibson's exploits, brings him into clear focus as one of the outstanding baseball players of his era...He emerges here as a stoic figure...totally dedicated to baseball.'_New York Times Book Review. 'Brashler helps to cut through the legend of a moonfaced laughing giant and give us a sense of Josh's life, in and out of baseball.'_New York Review of Books.
