If Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Satchel Paige were alive today (he died in 1982), 2021 would already be a great year for him.

First came the news at the end of 2020 that MLB retroactively will give the Negro Leagues Major League status. This means as historians spend 2021 and possibly beyond pouring over record books, Paige’s career record and ERA could improve, given he spent time in the Negro Leagues before he made his debut in the big leagues for the Cleveland Indians in 1948.

Once records are sorted out, Paige’s career ERA would go from 3.29 to 2.58 and his career record would jump from 28-31 to 140-91.
