Satchel Paige was a legendary African-American baseball player. His real name was Leroy Robert Paige and he earned the nickname ‘Satchel’ when he used a pole for carrying additional bags while he worked as a porter in a railway station. As a victim of racism, he had the chance to play for Major League Baseball only for five years and made his appearance only once in the World Cup Series. He was a right-handed pitcher who was known for his fastballs and curveballs. An arm injury made him develop a special pitching style called ‘hesitation pitch’, an experiment that resulted out of aiming for different arm angles. He was the oldest man to have made his debut in the major National League. He made a record as the first Negro pitcher in the American League and the seventh Negro big leaguer overall. His baseball skills, professionalism, accuracy, speed and commitment won him the adulation of fans from around the world. He claimed that he had played 2,500 matches and won nearly 2,000 of them. He was considered a great sportsman who proved that age could never be a barrier for success. Regarding the tireless dispute over his age and skill, he used to quote Mark Twain’s words, "Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
