Stachel Paige enters MLB...



Item # 568428

July 8, 1948

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York,  July 8, 1948  This 46 page newspaper has two column headlines on page 26 that include: "Satchel Paige, Ace Negro Pitcher, Signed by Indians for Relief Role" and more with nice related photo showing him with Bob Feller in the Indians dugout.

This was when Satchel Paige signed a contract to play with the Cleveland Indians. Because of his age, many thought this was a publicity stunt but Paige would end up finishing his first season with a 6-1 record.

Other news of the day throughout. Rag edition in very nice condition.
