Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814330258, Paperback)

The 1968 Detroit Tigers always will mean something very special to the city of Detroit. No one player is a better symbol of the relationship between the '68 team and the city than is Willie Horton. When eight-year-old Willie was walking the six miles from his home in Stonega, Virginia to neighboring Appalachia to play baseball, he never dreamed that one day he would star in a major league World Series. The likelihood of a successful career of any kind seemed even more remote after his family moved to Detroit, Michigan. Growing up in Detroit's "Projects," Willie had no way of knowing that one day he would give his name to a foundation dedicated to helping youngsters living in similar slum conditions.
