Satchel Paige was born on July 7, in the year 1906. He was born as Leroy Robert Paige in Mobile, Alabama. Satchel Paige was a proud and happy American professional baseball pitcher. No wonder he played in Negro league baseball and Major League Baseball (MLB).
Satchel Paige made it possible for most young black baseball lovers to dream. Since he was able to enter this world, he set out the right path for others like Jackie Robinson and the likes.
Did Satchel Paige ever pitch to Babe Ruth?
Satchel Paige allegedly had Babe Ruth stuck out four good times. During the second World War, Satchel Paige mostly pitched to sell war bonds in exhibitions. Also, he pitched to raise some cash for charities that are linked to war.
Babe Ruth never had a bat against Paige. This is mostly made clear by those who always try to make a statement of how blacks have always been taken out from participating widely in the Major League Baseball before the 15th of April, 1947.
This was when Jackie Robinson ended this color issue when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in the National League.
