"Ask us ANYTHING!!"


When and where?

From:  "J. R. McCutcheon"

what year and for what team did Sachel Page first play in the major league.

Danny simply answered with this: 

Cleveland Indians, 1948

Casey gave us this bit of information: 

about Sachel Page: (I think his name is actually spelled differently)...anyways....in the following website (Satchel Paige's official biography page), there's a biography of Satchel Paige. In this biography, it says that he was tested by Bill Veeck before pitching in the major league for the Cleveland Indians in 1948. He helped the Indians win the pennant. Here is the website if you want to read more here

David K did a little bit of research: 

First of all, the man's name is spelled Satchel Paige. He first played for the Cleveland Indians in 1948 and had a won-loss record of 6-1 and an ERA of 2.48. He later played for the St Louis Browns (who are now the Baltimore Orioles) and the Kansas City Athletics (who are now the Oakland Athletics), compiling a lifetime won-loss record of 28-32 and an ERA of 3.29. That stint with the A's was actually for only one start, after he had been out of baseball for 12 years. He was in his mid-50's at the time, and he pitched 3 scoreless innings.
Here's a link showing his lifetime statistics in Major League Baseball here

Keith helped out with with this thought:
