Just Like Josh Gibson
( by Angela Johnson/ illus. By Beth Peck, Simon & Schuster $15.95 Score: ) This is a younger story than Mighty Jackie, the Strike-out Queen. Itís also about an African-American girl who loves to play baseball. Growing up in the 40ís it doesnít matter that she plays as well or better than most of the boys. That is, until the day when her cousin Danny hurt his arm and the All Star team needed a ninth player. Told as a memoir about Grandmama, thereís a bio of her hero, Josh Gibson, one of the giants of the Negro League who never got to play in the major league. 5 & up.
