Josh Gibson is considered by many to be one of the greatest power hitters in baseball history. One of his towering blasts at Yankee Stadium was estimated to have traveled 580 feet!!!
From the Baseball Hall of Fame's website, "His legendary feats with the Homestead Grays have many experts regarding Gibson as the sport’s greatest home run hitter. Negro Leagues statistics of the time are largely incomplete, but the legend of Gibson’s power has always been larger than life."
“Josh was a better power hitter than Babe Ruth, Ted Williams or anybody else I’ve ever seen,” said former Cleveland Buckeye pitcher and manager Alonzo Boone. “Anything he touched was hit hard. He could power outside pitches to right field. Shortstops would move to left field when Josh came to the plate.”
Gibson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.
