The Satchel Paige Foundation (SPF) is a 501 (c) (3) organization formed to perpetuate his legacy through charitable programs with the overall focus to use Leroy "Satchel" Paige's personal story of strife to success as a method to connect with youth, provide hope, social and emotional learning, and other skills, to encourage a general uplifting of communities.
To fulfill this purpose, the SPF is currently partnering with Drumm Farm to implement a MLB STEM based curriculum into the supplemental learning opportunities provided to the children living at Drumm Farm and other youth that are taking advantage of the outreach services offered by Drumm Farm. This partnership not only encourages youth to learn, but also provides hope, the chance to be a part of a team, and the joy of just playing the game.
Leroy Robert "Satchel" Paige (July 7, 1906 – June 8, 1982) was a Negro league baseball and Major League Baseball (MLB) pitcher. He played in the Negro Leagues most of his baseball career. He was the first Negro League pitcher in the American League. Playing for the Cleveland, Indians, Satchel Paige was the oldest rookie in Major League Baseball. He played in the All-Star Game in 1952 and 1953 while playing for the St. Louis Browns. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, in 1971. On July 28, 2006, a statue of Satchel Paige was unveiled in Cooper Park, Cooperstown, New York commemorating the contributions of the Negro Leagues to baseball.
