Publisher's Synopsis

Baseball Hall of Famer Leroy 'Satchel' Paige (1906-1982) changed the face of the game in a career that spanned five decades - and made a point of writing his own history... and then rewriting it. A tall, lanky fireballer, he was arguably the Negro League's hardest thrower, most entertaining storyteller and greatest gate attraction. Now the Center for Cartoon Studies turns a graphic novelist's eye to Paige's story. Told from the point of view of a sharecropper, this compelling narrative follows Paige from game to game as he travels throughout the segregated American South.
