The Total Tutor will interview The Executive Director of The Josh Gibson Foundation and Great Grandson of Josh Gibson, Sean Gibson. Sean will discuss the components of the foundation.
Sean L. Gibson is the great-grandson of Baseball Hall of Fame legend Josh Gibson. Sean has dedicated his life to the preservation of Josh's legacy and is the Executive Director of the Josh Gibson Foundation, a Pittsburgh area non-profit organization. The Josh Gibson Foundation was established in 1994 in an effort to keep the memory of Pittsburgh's beloved Josh Gibson and the entire Negro League alive. The foundation partners with Duquesne University by matching up college students with elementary and middle school youth for tutoring. The foundation also sponsors the Josh Gibson Little League.
There is likely no greater expert on the history of the Negro Leagues than Sean who speaks to a variety of groups throughout the year teaching on the significance of these great men who played the game before Jackie Robinson integrated baseball in 1947.
Josh Gibson, the man that many regard as the greatest Negro League player ever, was born on December 21, 1911 in Buena Vista, Georgia. He relocated to southwestern Pennsylvania in 1924 after his father found work in a Pittsburgh area steel mill. Josh began catching for the Pittsburgh Crawfords in 1927. With the addition of Gibson, the Crawfords rose to the top of the city's sandlot teams and challenged Cumberland Posey's Homestead Grays, a stellar club of Black professional baseball players from across the nation.
During Gibson's career, he played ball with Hall of Famers Oscar Charleston, Cool Papa Bell, Judy Johnson, and Satchel Paige. The Homestead Grays won an unprecedented nine consecutive Negro National League pennants with Gibson behind the plate.
Hear former Yankees and Mets pitcher Mike Torrez talk pitching and his latest venture: pitching coach of the Newark Bears. Sean Gibson, president of the Josh Gibson Foundation, shares old Negro League stories. Joseph DelGrippo responds to his Jack Morris HOF critics.
