Walter Johnson was one of the finest gentlemen of this game. His sportsmanship, ethics and sense of fair play was admired by boys from coast to coast during that era.
Walter Johnson also gave interviews and had little hesitation for remarking about the business end of the game, at that time. His frankness about the ownership of professional baseball was, to say the least, a little rough around the edges, which was unusual, considering Johnson was a rather reserved and soft spoken.
Walter Johnson is one of the keystones in the Hall of Fame, and rightly so. Something that every young and up in coming ballplayer should read up on.
