Happy Birthday(?) Satchel Paige

Ron KaplanContributor IJuly 7, 2010

The exact date of birth of the American icon Satchel Paige has been disputed for many years.

Some Books on Paige include:

Maybe I’ll Pitch Forever , by Paige with David Lipman

Satchel: The Life and Times of an American Legend , by Larry Tye (read my Q&A with Tye here)

Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow , by James Sturm

Don’t Look Back : Satchel Paige in the Shadows of Baseball , by Mark Ribowsky

Paige is a staple of any volume that chronicles the history of the Negro Leagues and is also the subject of numerous kids’ books, which is beyond the purview of this entry.
