Thanks for posting; this is a very nice article on one of the greatest to ever coach sports, at any level. I have no doubt he could have easily been a excellent manager for the Pirates.
If you have not done it, read any of his books on leadership and the pyramid of success. The man is a born teacher, and I am convinced, one of the finest humans to walk the face of this earth. One that I just read a few years ago that I would recommend is "Coach Wooden, One on One" by Jay Carty.
PS- Reggie Jackson is a tool, and proves it again in this article: looks like the journalist wanted us to see that, too! John Wooden would never say that about Reggie, but I am not quite the man that John Wooden is!
