Satchel Paige Poster
Satchel Paige Poster – Satchel Paige was one of the first great, black baseball players, and as far as we know – he was never a cowboy. So we’re making him an honorary one for this great quote.
~ Work like you don’t need money, love like you’ve never been hurt, and dance like no one is watching. ~
Paige first played for the semi-professional Mobile Tigers from 1924 to 1926. He began his professional baseball career in 1926 with the Chattanooga Black Lookouts of the Negro Southern League and became one of the most famous and successful players from the Negro leagues. While his outstanding control as a pitcher first got him noticed, it was his infectious, cocky, enthusiastic personality and his love for the game that made him a star. On town tours across America, Paige would have his infielders sit down behind him and then routinely strike out the side. He played his last professional game on June 21, 1966, for the Peninsula Grays of the Carolina League.
