This biography chronicles the life of Leroy Paige from his elementary school pitching days to his signature slow ball in the Negro Leagues and for the Cleveland Indians and, finally, his inclusion the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1971. Dion Graham narrates at a clip that projects enthusiasm, whether it be for Leroy’s early pitching attempts, his satchel-toting services (that nickname “just stuck”), or his pitching and batting duel with his friend Josh Gibson. Graham slows when the tone of Leroy’s life becomes serious such as when he went to reform school, learned the difference between throwing and pitching, and bristled at the differences between the two baseball leagues of the 1920s. Vital statistics complete the recording. A.R. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2012]
