Two new biographies run different basepaths to Willie Stargell
Many people forget that Willie was a coach in the Braves system and his tutelage left an undeniable mark on some of their up and coming big league prospects. These are the same prospects that when they finally came to the big leagues won 15 or so division championships.
It shows the knowledge Stargell possessed and how he was able to pass it on to a new era of superstars. This book is another example of giving Willie Stargell his accolades while presenting some different aspects of the player and the man. If you have read other Stargell biographies you may find some of what is talked about repetitive, but in the end it does present some new information that was not included in other books.
The book does move along at a moderate pace and allows the reader to stay engaged with the story. I have yet to figure out why Willie Stargell is relegated to the shadows.
Is it playing in Pittsburgh his entire career, is it the quiet strength he brought to his team or is it playing in the shadow of Robert Clemente? I am not sure if it is all or any of these but they are reasonable questions to ask.
