    PDF/EPUB Howard Bryant ï The Last Hero PDF ´ The Last Kindle - ï last kindle, hero kindle, The Last epub, The Last Hero KindleAaron's characteristic aloofness cripples this book from the outset He's so carefully guarded his persona and image that Bryant is forced to dwell on his statistics and his contributions to African American baseball but these aspects have been covered elsewhere and so feel pedantic and one sided here Bryant does his best with a difficult subject and has certainly compiled a workable body of research even if his vanilla writing doesn't really carry all of it efficiently But again the subject remains distant so far out of reach on a pedestal that we never engage with his story One almost feels Aaron's resentment at being scrutinized ev

    PDF/EPUB Howard Bryant ï The Last Hero PDF ´ The Last Kindle - ï last kindle, hero kindle, The Last epub, The Last Hero KindleThis biography is at its core a story about the heart of Hank Aaron At times Aaron was a prickly man prone to sulking while he played in the shadow of his contemporary Willie Mays and in a small media market While Aaron did not have the dazzling play making ability of Mays Aaron was the better hitter Interestingly Aaron and Mays grew up in Mobile Alabama and played against one another in high schoolAaron signed a contract with the Negro Leagues at the age of sixteen and did not complete high school He would become the last Hall of Famer to have played in the Negro Leagues After two years there he was signed by the Braves in the Major Leagues and made his debut at 19 when Bobby Thompson broke his ankle Aaron won the MVP in 1957 in his third year the same year the Braves won the World S

    PDF/EPUB Howard Bryant ï The Last Hero PDF ´ The Last Kindle - ï last kindle, hero kindle, The Last epub, The Last Hero KindleThe author includes enough baseball for the baseball enthusiasts without drowning the reader in He does an astute job of studying Henry Aaron's character the strengths and the weaknesses thereof Sometimes the stories within the story like the Braves' move to Atlanta are at least as interesting as the main character himself

    PDF/EPUB Howard Bryant ï The Last Hero PDF ´ The Last Kindle - ï last kindle, hero kindle, The Last epub, The Last Hero KindleI read this for a look at the systemic racism that is still prevalent in today's society I chose this over I Had A Hammer thinking it would be a well rounded view Got some good stuff on baseball integration and some of the early black star players I agree with others that Henry is just not that forthcoming and the author struggled to describe his view of the game Bryant keeps referencing the racist hate mail of the early 70s that was covered so extensively in I Had A Hammer; I thought he should have gone in depth with that shown letter examples so that we could underst
