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.
