‘JOSH’

New Horizon Theater continues its 25th Anniversary Celebration with “Josh: The Black Babe Ruth” at The Falk School/University of Pittsburgh, 4060 Allequippa St., Oakland, through Feb. 12. The story is about Negro League baseball player Josh Gibson, whom some say died of a broken heart. As his good friend, pitching legend Satchel Paige, tries to shed light on the business of baseball, Gibson is determined to make it in the big leagues and show that he can rival the greats like Joe Dimaggio and Babe Ruth.
