An intimate portrait of a tortured player, this biography culls interviews, letters, and the personal account of baseball legend Willie Mays Aikens. Touted from a young age as the next Reggie Jackson, Aikens' promising career quickly turned disastrous when he fell into drug abuse and was ultimately sentenced to the longest prison sentence ever given to a professional athlete in a drug case.

Besides the nostalgia I'm really enjoyed Willies story. His story really parallels a life of one of my loved ones. I hope his story turns out as well as Willies.
