Description

These sculptures were designed and created by Timeless Creations to commemorate three important baseball players in Washington, D.C. history. Josh Gibson played with the Washington Homestead Grays, which was the African American team, from 1930-1941. With 10 home runs in 1943 alone, he was considered to be one of the best catchers and power hitters in the history of baseball, and he helped lead the Grays to eight of nine Negro national League titles. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.
