“Much of what we know about Satchel Paige . . . is undoubtedly true, some of it is probably apocryphal, all of it contributed to his legend as a ballplayer and one-of-a-kind personality.”
-- From the foreword by Bob Costas
Satchel Paige’s witty quips and savvy observations -- on everything from health to wealth, from race relations to baseball-- are an enduring part of American mythology. At long last, a definitive collection of quotes, stories (from Willie Mays, Joe DiMaggio, and many others), vintage newspaper articles, photos, and memorabilia celebrates the inimitable magic of Leroy “Satchel” Paige.
