July 8, 1948

THE BETHLEHEM TIMES-GLOBE, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania,  July 8, 1948 

* Satchel Paige finally enters MLB
* Negro star baseball pitcher

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.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 24 pages, a little spine wear with a few little binding holes, otherwise in good condition.
