Player Biography
A superb all-around Negro leagues player, Willie Wells forged his reputation as one of the best shortstops in baseball by utilizing his great range, sure hands and quick release. He was a defensive stalwart on several teams in the Negro and Mexican leagues – where his aggressive play earned him the nickname “El Diablo” (The Devil). “(Wells) always came up with the big play,” said Hall of Famer Monte Irvin. “The opposition would say, ‘Don’t hit it to shortstop because the ‘Devil’ is playing out there.’” Wells later gained renown as a leader and teacher, serving as player-manager with the Newark Eagles.
