Baseball Hall of Famer Leroy "Satchel" Paige (1905? ??? 1982) changed the face of the game in a career that spanned five decades.& nbsp; Much has been written about this larger-than-life pitcher, but when it comes to Paige, fact does not easily separate from fiction.& nbsp; He made a point of writing his own history???and then re-writing it.& nbsp; 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.& nbsp; 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.& nbsp; In stark prose and powerful graphics, author and artist share the story of a sports hero, role model, consummate showman, and era-defining American. & nbsp;
