Finally, at an age when most players retire, Paige proved that staying in the game pays off.David A. Adler and Terry Widener, the award-winning team behind several acclaimed sports biographies, have created a powerful story about a talented athlete who just wouldn't give up."Satchel Paige" isan inspired subjectfor baseball lovers, readers who are interested in African American history, and anyone who has held on to a dream."
