    Joe Dimaggio on facing Paige, as fast as any others he had ever seen, one of the greatest..
    Pre-season exhibition game Jan.1936 the year of Joe's first as a Yankee. Joe went 1 for 4 off off Paige. After the game he kidded, now I know I can make the team, I got a single off of Satchel Paige.

      Welcome to the site!

      There were numerous exhibition games where Ruth was struck out by much lesser pitchers than Paige, including one game where he and Gehrig were struck out by a woman (yes...who knows how hard they were trying....). If Ruth's legacy didn't take a dive against whiffing against local town teams or a woman, his worth wouldn't have taken a dive against Satchel. Part of Ruth's draw was him striking out even.

      Did you play any professional ball? A quality descendant of Paige would garner a lot of minor league drawing power; look at how much publicity Mike Yastrzemski has generate. In the minors, they love those kinds of publicity tools.
      The Padres should bring back Bruce Bochy as manager.

        If Babe hit two homers off of Paige or Paige struck Babe out 3 times, neither would be diminished.
        Both would still command the respect that they received.

          So... My grandmother and grandfather have both passed. I don't know what made me look up my uncle. But one thing I will tell you guys as being his great great great great great, ok I don't know exactly how many greats, nephew, he did in fact strike out babe Ruth on a private field. Ruth did in fact knock one of his pitches out so far that the kid had hard time finding it. He did in fact give Ruth that famous Paige glare. And he did in fact pay his respect. What I didn't like about this rivalry was that Ruth's people coulndt accept that he had been struck out by a negro so they hid it.... this truth would have made Ruth look bad. So they hid it. .....but not from my family. They were hiding and saw it. I am from mobile Alabama and my name is Samuel Steven Paige iii. And I throw just like him. I wish to play, I'm only 34 ask my high school coach Reggie Miller of Mary g Montgomery high.

              Keep it clean guys, keep it clean. These are facts that have been in my family since that happened. We don't care. It's just nice to have a famous person in your family. I'm not taking away from Ruth in any way since I must address this. As I recall,,, you weren't there either....
