Description: This book examines the life of the legendary baseball player, who was the first African-American to pitch in a Major League World Series. Some say Leroy Paige was born six feet three and a half inches tall, 180 pounds, wearing a size fourteen shoe. Not a bit of truth to it. So begins this unaffected biography of the first African-American pitcher to play major league baseball and the first black Baseball Hall of Fame inductee. Written with a storyteller sense of rhythm and pacing, Paige history will be best appreciated as a read-aloud. (40 pgs) Ages 5-10

Ashay says, "Satchel Paige is definitely one of the great ones and this book captures the legendary baseball players greatness in it art illustrations. It is also a very successful collaboration for Mr. and Mrs. Ransome. Must have for the library."
