Lesa Cline-Ransome (au); James E. Ransome (il). No one pitched like the legendary African-American baseball player Leroy “Satchel” Paige. Fans packed the stands to see how many batters he could strike out in one game. He dazzled them with his unique pitching style, & he even gave nicknames to some of his trademark pitches -- there was the “hesitation,” his magic slow ball, & the “bee ball,” named because it would always “be” where he wanted it to be. Follow Satch’s career through the text & these beautiful illustrations as he begins playing in the semi-pros & goes on to become the first African American to pitch in a Major League World Series, & the first Negro Leaguer to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Juvenile audiences.
