An all time Hall of Famer who played baseball for Pittsburgh was celebrated at Edinboro University.
Josh Gibson, the power hitting catcher for the Pittsburgh Crawfords and Homestead Grays was the subject of discussion as part of the Centennial Celebration of his birthday.
He played in the negro leagues from 1930 to 1946. His stats include hitting nearly 800 home runs, hitting 69 homers in 1934 and a career batting average of .359.
Gibson died in 1947, just months before Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier.
The slugger's great grandson Sean L Gibson, an Edinboro graduate, spoke along with former Negro League players Ted Toles and Pedro Sierra.
