It is so good that we got to see Paige near the end of his career
It is too bad that the Negro Leagues were made almost invisible by the media's lack of coverage.
Unfortunately, I was too stupid to ever get to see Ol' Satch in person.
But I did get to see Monte Irvin, the Jet, Dan Bankhead, and Hank Thompson.
But not Luke Easter (Grays), except on TV.
And Willard Brown, arguably among the best of the bunch, was gone in a flash.

But there are those who had breif (cups-of-coffee) Negro League stopoffs who we all recognize, including Willie, Campy, Aaron, and many others.

What we all have missed!

Thank you Fisherboy7 for this little peek.
