Biden Refers to ‘the Great Negro Pitcher’ Satchel Paige

‘I have adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time — pitcher in the Negro league who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros’

EXCERPT:

BIDEN: “I just want to tell you, I know you are a little younger than I am, but you know, I've adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time — pitcher in the Negro league who went on to become a great pitcher in the pros -- in the Major League Baseball after Jackie Robinson. His name is Satchel Paige. And Satchel Paige on his 47th birthday pitched a win against Chicago. (Laughter) And all the press went in and said, 'Satch, it‘s amazing.' Forty seven years old, no one's ever, ever pitched a win at age 47."
