  • Honus Wagner

    I am a big Honus Wagner fan and want to know how I can get information on George Aston a childhood friend of Honus' who reportedly served as the first Black trainer for the Pirates in the 1900's?

      You might try tracking down William Hageman, Wagner's biographer.

        here is an exert from Hageman's book, which mentions Aston.

        From the exert, it doesn't sound like they were childhood friends but that Aston met Wagner while caddying for him

          What is considered the best Wagner book? I want to read one, but is Hittner's (sp?) book that won the SABR award the best one?

            I too am a big fan of The Flying Dutchman.

            There's a bit of history on him here in Louisville at the Slugger Museum. They carried a book called Honus Wagner: The Life of Baseball's Flying Dutchman, I do not recall the author, but you should find something on the web.

                I don't think Google books are full text - unless they change the available pages as a user changes his/her search criteria. At any one time searching a book, blocks of pages are omitted.
