Josh Gibson
By

Rating
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. "A balanced account that...brings him into clear focus as one of the outstanding baseball players of his era."-New York Times Book Review.
