Details

Much has been written about this larger-than-life pitcher, but when it comes to Paige, fact does not separate easily from fiction. A tall, lanky fireballer, he was arguably the Negro League's hardest thrower, most entertaining storyteller, and greatest gate attraction. Now the Center for Cartoon Studies turns a graphic novelist's eye to Paige's story. Told from the point of view of a sharecropper, this compelling narrative follows Paige from game to game as he travels throughout the segregated South. In stark prose and powerful graphics, author and artist share the story of a sports hero, role model, consummate showman, and era-defining American.
