    FWIW, the only real fact is that we'll never know (and what a crime and shame it is). At Nats Park, there are displays of DC baseball history, including the Grays. There's the quote from Walter Johnson about Gibson, that says, in sum, that Gibson was the greatest catcher he'd ever seen, and worth $200,000 (!!!) to any team that could sign him... more opinion, I know, among many other informed ones, but the idea we can interpolate inter-league performance is unfortunately uninspiring.
    Terrible, Josh and other black players, good and great ones not allowed to play MLB.
    Those blacks playing in early years, would have greatly enriched the history of the game.
