Junius Bibbs

Junius Bibbs (October 31, 1910 – September 11, 1980) was an American infielder in baseball's Negro Leagues from about 1933 to 1944. Born in Henderson, Kentucky to Lloyd Bibbs and Catherine Carr, the Bibbs family, including his sister Eloise, moved to Terre Haute, Indiana, when he was a child. While there, Bibbs attended Paul Lawrence Dunbar Elementary school and lettered in track, baseball and football at the former Wiley High School, from which he was graduated in 1927. While attending Indiana State University, where Bibbs studied for a BS in science, the switch hitter began his baseball career, playing with the Indianapolis Crawfords and the Detroit Star. His 1937 record with the Cincinnati Tigers -- reportedly batting .404 that season—led to his selection to the West squad of the All-Star game. Part way through his season with the Chicago American Giants in 1938, he was recruited to the legendary Kansas City Monarchs. From 1938 to 1941, he was a starter for the Monarchs, winning three (1939–1941) Negro Leagues Championships. He finished his career in 1944 with the Cleveland Buckeyes.
