HANK AARON: Quiet Superstar by Al Hirshberg

HANK AARON: Quiet Superstar

Email this review


From ""humble beginnings on the wrong side of the tracks"" in Mobile through the good years in Milwaukee and the still strong seasons in Atlanta as King Henry, Aaron has been a man to watch. Here his elusive personality is scratched at--those imaginary conversations with Musial and other early uneasy interviews--but mostly it's how he accumulated all those records. A little on racial injustice (the year he ""led the league in everything but hotel accommodations""), brief references to his family, salary, friendship with Matthews, etc. For those who follow ""44,"" an admiring but not fawning tribute.
