Paiges career overflowed with legend from beginning to end- the most compelling character to come out of the Negro Leagues, he finally broke into the Majors as a relatively old man in his 40s, and continued to stymie Big League hitters on and off until he could finally sit back and collect Social Security. Paige lived large, casting a giant shadow on and off the diamond as he battled prejudice with a disarming mixture of skill--during the barnstorming era of the 20s and 30s, the white stars of game hated facing him--and an unforgettable wit: Dont look back, he counselled, something might be gaining on you. His breezy autobiography is colorful, spirited, conversational, and immodest, but as Satch would be the first to admit, he had very little to be modest about. The literature of the game is more vivid for its presence. --Jeff Silverman
