MLB's press release 50 years ago Tuesday said Satchel Paige "dominated Negro baseball as Babe Ruth dominated the major leagues." But Paige was named that day to a separate Hall of Fame exhibit from other enshrinees, as the first player recognized for Negro Leagues greatness. In the ensuing months, the Hall changed course and on August 9, 1971, inducted him as a full-fledged member — there are now 35 from the Negro Leagues immortalized in Cooperstown.

The Hall of Fame announced 2/9/71 that Satchel Paige would be enshrined, but not in the area with major leaguers. His ex-KC Monarchs teammate Buck O'Neil said in our 1999 interview, "They were thinking about Negro League baseball: a bunch of clowns out there, just a bunch of showmen." The HoF changed its stance & O'Neil said, "Now it's a true Hall of Fame, this is baseball in America...it's a lesson that it was baseball at its finest."

Negro Leagues legend Satchel Paige was announced as a Hall of Famer 2/9/71, but was to be honored in an area apart from major leaguers. That stance changed & the new inductee's plaque was mounted with the rest. Ted Williams advocated at his induction 5 years earlier for Paige's & Josh Gibson's inclusion & in our 1999 interview said, "Probably as important a thing as I ever said…. you might as well take the whole Hall of Fame out if he (Paige) is not in it -- greatest draw, greatest pitcher."

Before Satchel Paige's 2/9/71 selection to the Hall of Fame & induction that August, no Negro Leaguers had been so honored. They hadn't played the requisite 10 years in the majors, HoF leadership had said, an argument historian Bill James described in our 1999 interview as: "We're no longer going to exclude you because you're Black, we're now going to exclude you because you're not qualified -- you're not qualified because we excluded you before."
