Description
He hit more home runs than Mark McGwire, Babe Ruth, or Hank Aaron. He was the best in the game, yet he was never allowed to play in the Major Leagues. And he died just four months before Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier. His name was Josh Gibson, and Coming Home is his incredible story. This beautifully illustrated tribute to baseball's greatest home run hitter is the first picture book ever published about Josh Gibson.A portion of the proceeds of this book will be donated to The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
