I know of no other professional sport that brings people together quite like baseball. At the stadium, strangers become friends, the seats are filled with families, and, unlike, say, a football, basketball or hockey game, conversation is not only possible but encouraged. Visit each stadium, meet new people, love the game and cross it off the bucket list.
Leroy “Satchel” Paige was a right-handed pitcher who played in the Negro League as well as in Major League Baseball, though he didn't play in the major leagues until the age of 42 due to segregation at the time. Stars such as Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller and others praised Paige as the best they had ever seen. He was inducted into the HOF in 1971, the first player from the Negro League to be so honored.
