Leroy Robert Satchel" Paige The Greatest Ever
Happy Birthday to the greatest pitcher to ever to grace the baseball. You can have all your Cy Young, Bob Feller, Dizzy Dean, Christy Mathewson, Big Train Johnson, Warren Spahn, Roger Clemens, and even Sandy Koufax. In my mind Leroy Robert "Satchel" Paige out of MoooBile, Alabama was the greatest pitcher ever, period. Today, Satch would have been 111-years-young because it seemed that Satchel Paige never aged. Had Satch been able to play in his prime with those "white boys" he would've held all the pitching records, period. The only pitcher that I can equate to Satchel Paige is Robert "Bullet Bob Gibson in his prime when he was pitching for the St. Louie Cardinals.
