History: The original Marlins were owned by the colorful Bill Veeck, who brought the aging Negro leagues veteran pitcher Satchel Paige to Miami in 1956. Paige was nearing 50, and Don Osborn, the Marlins' manager, was skeptical about Satch's ability to help the club. His doubts vanished after Paige shut down nine straight Marlins in a demonstration of his still-sharp pitching skills.
