Willie Mays

Willie Howard "Say Hey" Mays
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 180 lbs.
Born: May 6, 1931 in Westfield, AL
Signed: 1950 by the New York Giants
Acquired: traded from the San Francisco Giants for
Charlie Williams and cash, May 1972

 

One of the twenty or so greatest players ever to put on a big-league uniform. Willie began his career with the New York National League team (the Giants, that is), then moved west when that franchise went to San Francisco. He continued to build his Hall of Fame résumé there, then returned home to New York to finish his career with the Mets. The last hit of his superlative career came for the Mets in the 1973 World Series, a fitting farewell for one of the all-time greats in baseball history. The Say Hey Kid is pictured here on his 1964 Topps Giants card, and there are several more of Willie's cards pictured below.

"There's never been a perfect ballplayer. Willie Mays came closest."

-- Joe DiMaggio 1

 

"Willie Mays had the most unsurpassed instinct or anticipation I've ever seen...it was phenomenal."

-- Willie's former manager Charlie Fox 1

 

"That Willie Mays, he's one of the greatest center fielders who ever lived. You can go back as far as you want and name all the great ones--Tris Speaker, Eddie Roush, Max Carey, Earl Combs, Joe DiMaggio. I don't care who you name, Mays is just as good, maybe better."

-- Hall of Fame outfielder Harry Hooper 1
