This image features Satchel Paige.  One of Paige's widely-quoted rules for staying young was "Avoid running at all times."  This atypical athletic advice apparently served him well, as he was considered the greatest Negro leagues pitcher of all time.  He was a high-impact player in the majors as well, going 6-1 in his rookie season, at the estimated age of 48.  Paige was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1971, the first African-American elected solely for his service in the Negro leagues.

  • This photograph is a faithful reproduction of an image from the permanent collection of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. 
  • Photograph measures 8" x 10", with matting total measurement is 11" x 14" 
  • Archival quality photo paper 
  • Acid free matting

 

Player Biography
Leroy “Satchel” Paige was one of the most entertaining pitchers in baseball history. A tall, lanky fireballer, he was arguably the hardest thrower in the Negro leagues, as well as one of its greatest gate attractions. James “Cool Papa” Bell once declared, “He made his living by throwing the ball to a spot over the plate the size of a matchbook.” In the 1930s, Paige barnstormed around the continent, baffling hitters with creatively named pitches like the “Bat Dodger” and “Hesitation Pitch.” In 1948, on his 42nd birthday, Paige’s contract was sold to the Cleveland Indians, making him the oldest player to debut in the major leagues.
