Ammons Playground
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Teach your kids about the baseball player who paved the way for Jackie Robinson and racial equality in American sports. Known as the "Black Babe Ruth," Josh Gibson played on two Negro teams in Pittsburgh, and hit 800 home runs over the course of his extraordinary 17-year career. This incredible athlete died only months before Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, so he never saw the color barrier breached in American baseball. Bring your family here to celebrate the life and achievements of Josh Gibson.
