      From a Brief Biography of Satchel Paige
      <http://www.cmgww.com/baseball/paige/bio2.html>

      Pronounced the greatest pitcher in the history of the Negro Leagues,
      Paige
      compiled such feats as 64 consecutive scoreless innings, a stretch of 21
      straight wins, and a 31-4 record in 1933. For 22 years, Paige mauled the
      competition in front of sellout crowds. Sure, he liked the attention,
      but
      to him, there was only one goal. That goal would be to pitch in the
      Major
      Leagues.

      In 1948, Paige's dream came true. The Cleveland Indians were in need of
      extra pitching for the pennant race. Legendary Bill Veeck tested Paige's
      accuracy before offering him a big league contract. As the story is
      told,
      Veeck placed a cigarette on the ground to be used as a home plate. Paige
      took aim at his virtually nonexistent target. He fired five fastballs,
      all
      but one sailing directly over the cigarette. Veeck was indeed pleased,
      and
      Paige helped the Indians win the pennant.

      Satchel Paige
      From Wikipedia, the Free Encyclopedia.
      <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satchel_Paige>

      He is known today for his longevity and age. It is true that he was the
      oldest major league rookie ever, when he joined the Cleveland Indians in
      1948, and that he was pitching professionally into his late fifties.
      What
      this overlooks is the fact that in his youth, Paige was the pitching
      star
      of the Negro Leagues. At a time when African-Americans were barred from
      the major leagues, Paige drew huge crowds, black and white. His pitching
      propelled the Pittsburgh Crawfords to the top of the Negro National
      League
      in the early 1930s, and then did the same for the Kansas City Monarchs
      during their four-year skein of Negro American League pennants from 1939
      to 1942.

      Paige was the biggest drawing card in Negro League baseball. His
      presence
      guaranteed large crowds. Paige was often tempted to jump from team to
      team
      or league to league, to get a bigger paycheck. In 1937, he led a large
      group of Negro Leaguers to the Dominican Republic, to play for a team
      owned by Dominican president Rafael L. Trujillo. The move decimated the
      Crawfords, from which Paige and most of the players hailed. Later, Paige
      went to play in the Mexican League.

      In 1971 Satchel Paige became the first Negro League star honored by
      induction into the National Baseball Hall Of Fame.


      America's Story from America's Library: The Library of Congress
      Leroy Robert "Satchel" Paige Was Born July 7, 1906
      <http://www.americaslibrary.gov/jb/progress/jb_progress_satchel_1.html>

      How old is "too old" to play professional baseball? At the age of
      fifty-nine, Satchel Paige became the oldest player in the major leagues.
      He may also have been the best pitcher in baseball ever.
      Leroy Robert "Satchel" Paige was born on July 7, 1906. He earned his
      nickname, Satchel, when he was a young boy carrying bags (and satchels)
      at
      railroad stations for passengers. Initially barred from the major
      leagues
      because he was African American, Paige played in what was referred to as
      "the Negro Leagues." Paige's pitching took the Kansas City Monarchs to
      five Negro American League pennants. He also showcased his skills by
      barnstorming across the country. What is barnstorming?

      In barnstorming, a player traveled across the country and pitched for
      any
      team willing to meet his price. (Teams also barnstormed around the U.S.
      and played against local teams.) Paige sometimes traveled as many as
      30,000 miles a year and in one streak pitched twenty-nine days in a row!
      He played in exhibition games against the best players of the day, black
      or white. Huge crowds came to watch him.
      "I liked playing against Negro League teams," Paige was quoted as
      saying,
      "but I loved barnstorming. It gave us a chance to play everybody and go
      everywhere . . ."

      Paige finally got his chance to play in the major leagues as a Cleveland
      Indian in 1948. That was one year after Jackie Robinson broke the color
      barrier in major league baseball and went to play for the Brooklyn
      Dodgers.

      Satchel Paige Quotes from Ask Jeeves
      <http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/s/satchel_paige.html>


      Baseball needs to pack another Satchel
      Tuesday, October 30, 2001
      By JON HAHN
      SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER COLUMNIST
      <http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/hahn/44562_hahn30.shtml>

      What would make me a baseball fan in this era of mega-million-dollar
      contracts is another Satchel. If anyone could fill the bleachers as well
      as the luxury boxes and make baseball a game again, it would be another
      Satchel Paige. I want to watch someone playing because he loves the game
      the same way Michael Jordan loves basketball.

      Ain't nobody ever was sure about Satchel's age. When his mother was
      interviewed in 1948 and said he was then 44, Satchel said: "If she said
      it, she must have mistaken me with my oldest brother. It is quite a job
      keeping up with 16 kids."

      But ain't nobody arguing about his stats: 2,600 games pitched and 2,100
      of
      them won. Three hundred shutouts. Sixty-four consecutive scoreless
      innings. Twenty-four strikeouts in a single game.

      In 1965, he literally came off his rocking chair -- set up in the Kansas
      City Athletics bullpen as a publicity shtick --and pitched three shutout
      innings.

      Paige played 25 years in the Negro Leagues before being signed in 1948
      by
      Cleveland Indians owner Bill Veeck. The Sporting News editorialized then
      that "to bring in a rookie pitcher of Paige's age (then fortysomething)
      is
      to demean baseball." But after an utterly fantastic season, the
      publication had no choice but to name him its Rookie of the Year.


      Now lets have a look at Satchel Page as a topic of search in the new
      Google service called Scholar Google and here is some of what we find.

      Racial Integration as an Innovation: Empirical Evidence
      from Sports Leagues
      By BRIAN L. GOFF, ROBERT E. MCCORMICK, AND ROBERT D. TOLLISON*
      The American Economic Review, 2002

      <http://snipurl.com/b4ge>

      This paper treats racial integration as an innovation in economic
      process
      in which economic entities find it advantageous to utilize potentially
      more productive inputs previously unavailable due to law, custom, or
      managerial discretion. Data on the racial integration of Major League
      Baseball and Atlantic Coast Conference basketball are employed to
      address
      this issue. The central question examined is which type of team
      integrated
      firstlosers or winners? The results strongly support the idea that
      entrepreneurship trumps competitive rivalry; that is, winning teams led
      the process of racial integration. (JEL L1, J7)
