SIMPLY THE BEST I'VE EVER SEEN
on August 17, 2017
One of my all-time favorite baseball players but I had never read a biography about him until now. Considering that I grew up in Brooklyn during the "golden era of NYC baseball" this volume was especially interesting even though I've always been a Yankees fan and idolized Mickey Mantle.
Like all of us, Willie the human being was far from perfect even though I still feel that he is the best all-around baseball player who I've ever seen. Every year one hears that some rookie is the "next Willie Mays". So far, I haven't seen anyone better as a "five tool" player.
Even if you never saw Willie play, if you're a baseball fan this is a must-read.
