Description
You're born with speed, but you can get the control, said Satchel Paige. After more than twenty years pitching fast balls, Leroy Satchel Paige crossed the color line in baseball. As the first black pitcher in the American League, 42-year-old Paige was past the prime of most ballplayers, but the crowds still packed the stands to witness his famed shutouts and no-hitters. In an inspiring account, the McKissacks describe the hardships and hard work that created this pitching genius.
