McFarlane - Cooperstown Series 2 - Willie Stargell
He was Pittsburgh's hero, but everyone's friend. The man known as "Pops" was one of the most endearing players in baseball history. Willie Stargell earned a nation of fans with his earnest smile and fearsome power. The patriarch of the "We Are Family" Pirates clubs, Stargell was named the National League MVP in 1979 at the age of 39! Willie led Pittsburgh to World Series titles in 1971 and 1979 and brought a jovial presence to the park rarely seen since.
