LeRoy "Satchel" PAIGE (HOF)


The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: This tall right-hander has a big windup that confuses batters. With his long arms swinging and his leg high in the air, it is almost impossible to pick out the ball among all the chaos. Paige knows it, too, sometimes telling his fielders to sit down while he strikes out the side. A son of Mobile, Alabama, LeRoy seems to flourish as a traveling man. Not only does his ballplaying take him from city to city, he likes to switch teams nearly as easily as changing his shoes. In this way he has become famous throughout the baseball playing world.
