It is undisputed that Josh Gibson was the greatest position player in Negro League history. He could field, throw, catch, and most of all, he could hit. His power was legendary. It was claimed by Chicago American Giants infielder Jack Marshall that Gibson hit a ball out of Yankee Stadium in 1934, in the history of the stadium the only player to ever do that, if true. Though his statistics were often not officially kept, it is also thought that he hit more home runs than Barry Bonds, baseball’s current home run king, in far fewer at-bats. He did all of this hitting while fielding the most physically demanding position on the diamond – catcher, which has been proven to diminish a hitter’s offensive output due to extra wear and tear on their bodies over other positions.
