WALTER JOHNSON: King of the Pitchers

For the countless baseball fans, here is a biography of the ""greatest pitcher in the history of baseball"". Walter Johnson pitched for the Washington Senators for twenty years and achieved distinction as one of the finest people to play in any sport. Gentle, modest, humble, loved by all, Johnson seems to have combined winning traits as a pitcher with winning qualities as a person. Glimpses of his good, personal life, with his big family and his many pets, his excellent relations with his co-players create a pleasing picture of a gentlemanly player.
