Satchel Paige

Book Summary Author: Lesa Cline Ransome
Date: October 21st

This book was about one of the best pitchers in baseball history. The main character is Satchel Paige. His real name was Leroy Robert Paige. He was born July 7, 1907. He knew what he wanted to be, very yearly. He wanted to be a baseball player. He didn't know the difference between throwing and pitching. He is 93 years and 9 days older than me. I think was the best pitcher in the H. O. F (Hall Of Fame). He couldn't get in the majors for a long time, because african- americans were segragated.

My Opinion

I think it was a good book. Because it was about baseball, and I like baseball. The lesson learned here was that if you put your mind to something you can do it.

How did Louis get named Satchel? I think I wouldn't like the book because baseball bores me.
