Baseball Greats

Satchel Paige (1906-1982)

Don’t look back.  Something might be gaining on you.

Ted Williams (1918-2002)

No one has come up with a substitute for hard work.

Pitcher Satchel Paige played most of his years of baseball before the Major Leagues were opened up to play for African-Americans.  Despite this, he was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1971.

Left fielder Ted Williams played his entire Major League career with the Boston Red Sox.  In 1941, he hit .406 (the person to hit at least .400).  The Hall-of-Famer’s statistics are even more incredible when one realizes that he served in the military during both World War II and the Korean War as an aviator.
