Happy Birthday(?) Satchel Paige

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.
