I'm guessing the people who are thinking it's a unusable are either not American, know nothing about baseball, or know nothing about Black history. I'd wager that the average American would instantly think of Satchel Paige, not a purse.

    It doesn't say anything about Satchel. He dropped the name not because he had a problem with Satchel but because he had a problem with the person who chose it. Whether his dad had named him John or Amadeus or Beverley, he would have dropped it because he wanted nothing to do with Woody.
    I was going to say the same thing, but nat108 beat me to it.

    I have a strange soft spot for this name. I like the way it sounds. I like to say the name. I am a fan, and I can't tell you why.
