About this Event

This presentation highlights the life of Negro Leagues slugger Josh Gibson, who has been called the greatest baseball player of his day.

Gibson, who led the National Negro League in home runs for 10 consecutive years, played for the Pittsburgh Crawfords and the Homestead Grays from 1927 to 1946, which were racially segregated years in sports and American life.

A short trailer of the hour-long documentary, The Legend Behind the Plate: The Josh Gibson Story, will be shown. The documentary is narrated by Pittsburgh broadcasting legend and DU alumnus Bill Hillgrove and created in cooperation with the Josh Gibson Foundation.

We are thankful to the Cuyahoga County Arts and Culture Council for funds to support our efforts. As a result all programs are free.

Donations to support the community and youth efforts of the Community Cup Classic Foundation and Josh Gibson Foundation are welcome .
