Satchel Paige was one of the greatest pitchers in baseball. Take a look at his life and his struggle to be accepted into the major league.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
Satchel Paige may have been the best pitcher ever. He pitched thousands of games during a lifetime in baseball. And he won most of them. For most of his career, though, he was kept out of the "big show," the major leagues. Until the late 1940s, the major leagues were for whites only-Paige was an African American.

Publisher Description:
Satchel Paige could throw a baseball like no one else. But when he began his career in the 1920s, even the best African American players were kept out of the major leagues. Paige rose to stardom in the Negro Baseball Leagues - and he waited for his chance to play in the "big show." Finally, at an age when most players retire, Paige proved that staying in the game pays off.

David A. Adler and Terry Widener, the award-winning team behind several acclaimed sports biographies, have created a powerful story about a talented athlete who just wouldn't give up.
Satchel Paige is an inspired subject for baseball lovers, readers who are interested in African American history, and anyone who has held on to a dream.
