Ross Satchel Davis Nickname Satchel Paige, As 2013 rang in – baseball and the Negro Leagues lost another colorful player.

On New Years Day, Ross “Satchel” Davis passed away in Houston, Texas from complications due to pneumonia.

The pitcher who donned the uniforms of the Baltimore Elite Giants and Cleveland Buckeyes during his three-year professional baseball career was 94-years old.

Davis, whose baseball career was interrupted like many due to service in World War II where he won the Army’s Bronze Star, received his nickname from a more famous Satchel because the legendary Satchel Paige said that Davis threw harder than he did.

Due to recurring health problems, the Greenville, Mississippi native retired from baseball at the young age of 29.

Davis threw a no-hitter in 1940 versus the Newark Eagles and pitching for the 1947 Negro American League champion Cleveland Buckeyes, he compiled a 5-1 record and added one, relief appearance against the Negro National League champion New York Cubans in the Negro World Series.
