Player Biography
“Leon Day was as good as Satchel Paige, as good as any pitcher who ever lived,” teammate Monte Irvin once noted. With his blazing fastball, snapping curve and no wind-up delivery, Day baffled Negro leagues hitters throughout the 1930s and 1940s. Equally feared as a batsman, he often would play second base or the outfield when not pitching. Day spent two years pitching on integrated Army teams during World War II, and in his first game back with the Newark Eagles in 1946 he tossed a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Stars.
