    That question is attributed to Satchel Paige a major league pitcher of unknown age when he was asked by a reporter about his age.

    WS1,

    Satchels reply to the how old are you question was "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you was?"

    Ah Satchel "Leroy" Paige. Perhaps the best pitcher to ever throw a baseball. Never really got his due because of the league he played most of his games in. He was however the first Negro League Player inducted into the baseball Hall Of Fame. He played Back when pitchers would pitch a complete game plus extea innings or both games of a double header. Back when a pitcher was not just a pitcher and could be your best hitter as well. Not that I am that old but I have read about the great Negro League Players.

    Had my physical Tuesday at the VA, Doc asked me my "last 4" twice, he thought he had the wrong paperwork. It said I was 74,and I am, and he said you look better and have better test numbers than most 60's I see. If I could just get my knees and my lungs to act a little younger I'd be happy.
