Baseball Hall of Famer Leroy "Satchel" Paige (1905? ? 1982) changed the face of the game in a career that spanned five decades.& Much has been written about this larger-than-life pitcher, but when it comes to Paige, fact does not easily separate from fiction.& He made a point of writing his own history?and then re-writing it.& A tall, lanky fireballer, he was arguably the Negro League?'s hardest thrower, most entertaining storyteller and greatest gate attraction. Now the Center for Cartoon Studies turns a graphic novelist?'s eye to Paige?'s story.& Told from the point of view of a sharecropper, this compelling narrative follows Paige from game to game as he travels throughout the segregated South.& In stark prose and powerful graphics, author and artist share the story of a sports hero, role model, consummate showman, and era-defining American. &Sturm, James is the author of 'Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow', published 2007 under ISBN 9780786839001 and ISBN 0786839007.
