For the first-half of the 20th Century, the Negro Leagues flourished with not only some of the greatest players that the National Pastime has ever known, but also some of the greatest characters of the game. Satchel Paige had a pitch he called the “whipsy-dipsy-do,” a forkball that he threw sidearm. Turkey Stearnes talked to his bats, commending the ones that came through for him and threatening the ones that didn’t deliver with the ax.
And as for Cool Papa Bell? Well, he could fly down the base paths.
“Once Papa hit a line drive right past my ear,” Paige once said. “I turned around and saw the ball hit his ass sliding into second.”
The greatest collection of players ever assembled could be found in the Negro Leagues. We pay tribute to the many great players that passed through.
