GIF That Would Have Been Made: Satchel Paige’s Windup

Paige Windup

It’s a matter of historical record that, while the technology to manufacture animated GIFs existed in 1949, it was the province only of select government agencies and utilized primarily to produce short videos of J. Edgar Hoover doing sex to the Articles of Confederation.

Had said technology been more widely available to the public, however — and had personal computers existed and also the internet — then an enterprising weblogger would almost certainly have captured the footage above of Satchel Paige‘s marvelous windup and dispersed it to the people.

At the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, MO., there is some great footage of some players. It’s not a great big museum, but definitely worth the stop if in KC.
