Product description

Product Description

One of the most popular Cubs of all time—and now an executive advisor for the team—Williams reminisces about his early years, his Hall of Fame career, and his five decades in the game in this inspirational autobiography. In Billy Williams: My Sweet-Swinging Lifetime with the Cubs, he remembers the sturdy values and selfless devotion of the people from Whistler who helped shape his character; people like Lilly Dixon, his grade school principal, and Virgil Rhodes, his high school coach, both of whom he remembered in his Hall of Fame induction speech, and also his father who lived long enough to see his son play in the big leagues.

About the Author

Fred Mitchell has spent the past 33 years as a sportswriter covering the Chicago Bears, Cubs, and Bulls for the Chicago Tribune. Mitchell has written seven other books, including nationally acclaimed Playing Through with Earl and Tiger Woods. Mitchell lives in Chicago. Ron Santo is a Hall of Fame baseball player who spent his entire career with the Chicago Cubs.
