Satchel Paige's Last Game

Satchel Paige doesn't need much of an introduction.  He played in the Negro Leagues, finally making it to the bigs in 1948.  His final game in the major leagues was on September 25, 1965.

SABR member Ted Knorr asked on facebook: In Satchel Paige’s last game in organized ball, who relieved him?

There were a few guesses.  I didn't know, but I needed clarification.  Did "organized ball" mean only MLB?  Ted clarified that it meant MLB and their affiliated minors.  I still didn't know the answer.

A bit of digging on and then yielded the following article.  Satchel's final game in organized ball.

The Greensboro Record - June 22, 1966

So you don't have to squint...
