Satchel Paige was arguably the star of the Negro Leagues, where he played for 22 years. He possessed an assortment of pitches, which he delivered with great accuracy and control. Paige’s unique “hesitation fastball,” a pitch that was illegal in the major leagues, was infamous among Negro League batters.
 
Although his age was never determined, LeRoy “Satchel” Paige was born in Mobile, Alabama. At the age of seven, his ability to carry multiple bags while working as a porter earned him his nickname.
 
Paige began playing professional baseball in 1924, at a time when blacks were not allowed in the major leagues. But Paige often pitched against major leaguers in exhibition games. New York Yankee Joe DiMaggio considered Paige the greatest pitcher he ever faced. He once struck out 21 major leaguers in an exhibition game.
 
One of Paige’s most successful years was with the Pittsburgh Crawfords in 1933, when he won 31 games and lost 4. But he received the most attention in 1948, when he was signed to the Cleveland Indians. As the oldest rookie in the major leagues, Paige won six games and helped the Indians win the pennant. Paige finished up his major league career with 28 wins and 31 losses. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1971.
