S howman of baseball
A labama born
T roubled youth
C hattanooga Black Lookouts, his first team
H otels refused him rooms
E veryone wanted to see him play
L oved Lahoma

P itched a baseball like no other
"A in't no man got to be common," Satch said
I nducted into Baseball Hall of Fame
G ifted legend
E nergized the Negro Leagues
