One of the great baseball pitchers of his era, Paige played most of his career in the Negro League. In 1948, as one of the first black players in the major leagues, he became in all likelihood the oldest rookie in baseball history. (He was officially 42, but widely regarded as older.) In 1965 he pitched three innings of a major league game. See more »
