No, iconic baseball player, Leroy "Satchel" Paige was not known as "Sweet Knuckles". His nickname was "Satchel" which came from him being compared to a "Satchel Tree" when he earned extra money by carrying the luggage of businessmen to the train station. He is still on record as the oldest rookie in the history of Major League Baseball. He entered the major leagues via the Negro Leagues at the age of forty two. He was inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame in 1971 and passed away in 1982.
