What’s Rob Reading?

Satchel Paige (SABR-RUCKER ARCHIVE)“Satchel Paige added to legacy during stint in Minors”
By Kevin T. Czerwinski, MiLB.com

“The line between truth and tall tale is often blurred when discussing Satchel Paige. Many have called him the greatest pitcher whoever lived, offering stories from the two decades he played in the Negro Leagues as proof. … In between his Major League time with Cleveland and St. Louis in the late ’40s and early ’50s and that promotional appearance with the A’s in 1965, he continued to add to his legend by pitching in the Minor Leagues, a fact that is often overlooked when discussing Paige’s greatness. When Bill Veeck, the great innovator, brought Paige to Miami in 1956, it was more than a promotional stunt.”
