    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....

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.

    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.
    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.

    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.

    For the record this long ago Babe was promoting speaking out, on black players. What they could add to the game.
    He was limited to just speaking about it. No way were owners or MLB going to allow black players in the game back then.

    Terrible mistake because of skin color took so long, 1947.
    The history of the game would have been so enriched with black players in the game in the early years.

    Please can we get off the skin color. I doubt very much that a newspaper would be hesitant to say that Babe was struck out by Paige.
    Now you made the statement knowing you have no proof.

    Ruth's worth would have taken a dive, because he was struck out by one of the greatest black pitchers...............come on

    Being on the outside looking in.. I wouldn't either. But him and I share the same blood. If you don't speak properly, people won't think you know what you're talking about.i shared his his relaxed syntax, and saw the same ridicule. He was ol school southern. Meaning he didn't have access to good education like the whites did. it wasn't his fault that he didn't know how to speak "properly" just like it wasn't mines. Now that the whites aren't and cannot hold ALL of the knowledge for themselves ... Just trying to clear things up is all.

    If there were any agenda regarding a made up story, wouldn't you think Buck would say that Paige struck Ruth out?
    Is there a date attached to this story?
