Springfield-Greene County Library Hosting Virtual Program for Kids About Satchel Paige

Youngsters in the Ozarks are being given the opportunity Tuesday to learn about one of the greatest baseball players to ever take the diamond: Satchel Paige.

The 3 p.m. program will be presented by Tommy Terrific’s Wacky Magic and will feature a baseball-themed magic show.

Students from Kindergarten through 5th grade will learn about Paige: His noted longevity in the game, the multiple records in the negro leagues, becoming the oldest rookie in baseball history, being the first negro leagues player to pitch in the World Series, and the first electee of the Negro League Committee to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
