READ & DOWNLOAD ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ú William Brashler William Brashler Ú 6 DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD Josh Gibson: A Life in the Negro Leagues Perhaps baseball's greatest hitter Gibson was known as the black Babe Ruth In this illuminating biography William Brashler introduces an authent Beginning in 1930 with his debut with the Homestead Grays and extending through a career which featured several years with the Pittsburgh Crawfords and stints with various winter league teams in Puerto Rico the Dominican Republic and Mexico Josh Gibson was uite simply the greatest hitter of his era While he is often referred to as the black Babe Ruth the black press and fans of the Negro Leagues during the 1930 s called Ruth the white Josh Gibson Though records are sketchy Gibson is reported to have hit as many as 70 homeruns in a single season and it can safely be assumed that he hit than 800 round trippers in his career There are stories indicating that Gibson actually hit a homerun completely out of Yankee Stadium a feat no major leaguer has accomplished and although Brashler s research disputes this claim there are countless other tales of tape measure blasts There was a 525 foot homerun that landed in a Puerto Rico prison a one handed homerun in Indianapolis and a doubtful claim of a 700 foot blast out of Chicago s Wrigley Field Whether or not the stories are believed the overall perception cannot be ignored As the most imposing hitter of the 1930 s and 40 s Josh Gibson was larger than life He was posthumously inducted into baseball s Hall of Fame in 1972Most baseball fans are familiar with the legend of Josh Gibson but Brashler brings readers behind the stories of one of the greatest hitters of all time Along with the glory accorded a player of such talent there were disappointments as well The death of his first wife and the subseuent abandonment of his children haunted Gibson throughout his playing career and he often felt overshadowed by the showmanship of Satchel Paige These concerns combined with the disappointment of not being able to play in the major leagues likely led him to alcohol when his body began to break down late in his career When he died in 1947 at the age of thirty five months after Jackie Robinson broke in with the Brooklyn Dodgers Gibson was buried in an unmarked grave His family couldn t afford a gravestoneBrashler s biography of Gibson is complete and honest in its approach to Gibson s character and accomplishments In addition to Gibson he briefly profiles his peers men like Satchel Paige Oscar Peterson Judy Johnson Jimmy Crutchfield Cool Papa Bell and others There can be no discussion of the Negro Leagues without comment on the discrimination which made them necessary but Brashler avoids the trap of becoming overly sentimental focusing instead on the facts For a complete picture of the players and teams mentioned by Brashler try Only the Ball Was White Robert Peterson s comprehensive history of the Negro Leagues The Chapter 800 Answer Book uite simply the greatest hitter of his era While he is often referred to as the black Babe Ruth the black press and fans of the
