My dads pal Satchel Paige

satchel leroy paiges barnstorm promos

While he was in the Negro League and during barnstorming, the advertisements frequently read that either he struck out the first nine batters or the fans got their money back. Very rarely was any money returned.  Paige is often researched and written about  i.e. his lost years. I know where he was, barnstorming with my dad Dempsey Hovland on tours and eating with his family in our backyard bbq's.
