My Interview with him...

Me: "Do you ever regret playing on so many different teams?"

Satchel: "No, I feel like the more teams I play on the more of an adventure it is."

Me: "How did you feel when you were put on the hall of fame?"

Satchel: " Amazing, it felt so good and I knew all of it was worth it."

Me: "Do you ever think it's weird being excepted to the major leagues at 40?"

Satchel: "No, I never really thought about that."
