Waitkus as legend,
This review is from: Baseball's Natural: The Story of Eddie Waitkus (Writing Baseball) (Hardcover)
Wow, a can't-stop-reading book for baseball fans who don't care about stats but love the legends.
Waitkus encountered one of the worst stalkers in sports history and when the lable of stalker wasn't even there. Creepy and sad, this book is ironic, bitter and forces us to watch te decline of a player who shoulda, coulda, woulda been better if not for holes in the legal system that allowed a psycho to succeed in destroying a baseball star. Read it for the full, fleshed-out tale: you'll be creeped out more you thought possible.
