Josh Gibson Hidden In The Shadow Of America’s Racism
Tuesday, a major league baseball player signed a 324 million dollar contract to play 7 years for the New York Yankees. It made me wonder because I am a history buff exactly how much would the greatest baseball player in Negro Baseball League History be worth in today’s market?
There was a time when the greatest baseball players in this nation were shut out of America’s Pastime. The greatest position player of all time Joshua Gibson was never allowed to play ball in the major leagues. He was restricted because of his race. Today, I pay tribute to Josh Gibson on my blog.
