Likely the best baseball player God ever made.
I agree, it is a shame that Negro League stats aren't all correct. His HOF plaque claims he hit 800 or so HR's in the Negro and Independent Leagues. Babe Ruth was referred to by some as the "White Josh Gibson".

Yep. I have watched documentaries about him. He should have been Jackie Robinson.

Red Sox have had a nice week. We are starting to control the team ERA and creeping towards .500. Still a long ways to go but it's a step in the right direction.

I really hope Josh Hamilton and Matt Kemp keep this up all year. It'd be so awesome to see if one of them can win the triple crown.
