Satchel Paige Exhibit on Display at Beachwood Library
Leroy Robert “Satchel” Paige didn’t enter Major League Baseball until he was 42 years old, but that didn’t stop the rookie from helping the Cleveland Indians win the pennant in 1948.
Come hear about the life of the legendary storyteller and one of the most entertaining pitchers in baseball history at the Beachwood Library, presented by the Baseball Heritage Museum, on Saturday, February 8 at 2PM. Also scheduled to appear is former Negro Leagues player Ted Toles.
Paige’s pitching in the Negro leagues and in Major League Baseball made him a legend in his own lifetime. He is considered by many to be “The Face of Negro League Baseball” and attracted record crowds everywhere he pitched, due to his incredible pitching repertoire and his infectious personality.
The event is free and open to the public. Register for this event by visiting www.cuyahogalibrary.org or calling 216-831-6868.
During the entire month of February, images from the collection of the Baseball Heritage Museum will be on display at the Beachwood Branch of Cuyahoga County Public Library, located at 25501 Shaker Blvd in Beachwood.
