Happy Birthday Willie Mays

 

Happy Birthday Willie Mays!! The “Say Hey Kid” was born on this day in 1931. Happy 85th!! 

Watch as he makes one of the greatest catches in baseball history!

“People talk about that catch and, I’ve said this many times, that I’ve made better catches than that many times in regular season. But of course in my time, you didn’t have a lot of television during the regular season. A lot of people didn’t see me do a lot of things. –Willie Mays

Here Vin Scully on the greatest play he’s ever seen (and he’s seen a lot).

Mays was forever grateful to those that came before him, especially the great Jackie Robinson:

“Every time I look at my pocketbook, I see Jackie Robinson.” –Willie Mays

“Robinson was important to all blacks. To make it into the majors and to take all the name calling, he had to be something special. He had to take all this for years, not just for Jackie Robinson, but for the nation.”

–Willie Mays

 

Every time I look at my pocketbook, I see Jackie Robinson. Willie Mays
