What’s Rob Reading?

Willie Mays Five Tools, edited by Bill Nowlin and Glen SparksWillie Mays: Five Tools
Edited by Bill Nowlin and Glen Sparks

“Willie Mays thrilled baseball fans for more than two decades. He could do it all—in the outfield, at bat, and on the bases. Five Tools tells the story of arguably the greatest baseball player in the game’s history, through more than 20 insightful essays and recaps of over 30 of the most significant games in his career. Some essays explore Mays’ time in the Negro Leagues and minor leagues, while others examine the the relationship of Mays to his managers, the press, and his mentoring of Bobby and Barry Bonds.”
