The sport's section (page 14) has a one column photo with heading: "Negro Joins Tribe" with brief text. 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.
