#44 - Josh Gibson

When people called Babe Ruth “The White Josh Gibson,” you know Gibson was the REAL DEAL! Unfortunately, Gibson was relegated to playing in the Negro Leagues and as a result never got the public recognition he deserved.

But among players and baseball historians, Gibson is a LEGEND!  He’s widely regarded as one of the greatest power hitters the game has ever seen and reportedly hit a long ball over 500 feet!

Gibson played for the Homestead Grays from 1930 to 1931, the Pittsburgh Crawfords from 1932 to 1936, and returned to the Grays from 1937 to 1939 and 1942 to 1946. In 1937, he played for Ciudad Trujillo in Trujillo‘s Dominican League and from 1940 to 1941, he played in the Mexican League for Rojos del Águila de Veracruz. Gibson served as the first manager of the Santurce Crabbers, one of the most historic franchises of the Puerto Rico Baseball League.
