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.

Additional topics to be discussed are: more on Josh Trank's Fantastic Four trailer; George Clooney's Tomorrowland; Invader Zim returns; Flash and Gotham finales.

The sports world is jam packed with asinine drama and news. Mike "the Buzz-saw" Asti and George "the Howitzer" Gerbo guide you through this minefield.
It's the typical heel vs baby matchup of the century. Your favorite sports genius' give their picks of the Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao fight. George, the face, goes Pac-Man. Mike, the heel, goes Floyd $Money$. Mayweather vs Pacquiao is something we've been waiting for over half a decade, but it is far from the only major event of the week.
Major League Baseball is through one month of the news season, but some off the field issues are taking over the headlines. A game was played in Baltimore buffoon free, so without fans! Was there any other option in light of the riots? Alex Rodriguez is chasing Willie Mays' 660 home runs. This is a baseball milestone to everyone but the New York Yankees. Are the Yankees right to ignore this? Is there really any legal way the Yankees can not pay him the bonus? From star whose franchise hates him, to one that got shipped out. Josh Hamilton is a Texas Ranger again. Why didn't the Angels get anything of value in this deal?
Oh yeah, there are postseasons going on. As we head towards the second round in the NBA, how does the landscape look? Did the Cavs title hopes get hit without Kevin Love? What's the level of concern around Atlanta and the optimism around the Wizards and Bulls? San Antonio won't die.
We are also in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Can the Wild and Flames derail a seemingly destined Chicago vs Anaheim West Final? Which superstar needs to step up in the East? Stamkos? Nash? Ovechkin?
Expect the NFL Draft recap discussed on the next episode. Our guarantee is Cleveland will surely "Cleveland."
