Some have said that Willie Mays is the greatest all-around baseball player of all-time. Mays played in a record 24 All-Star games and won two National League MVP awards. He was a first ballot Hall of Famer and his 660 home runs rank as the fourth most in baseball history. The Giants retired his number and Mays was selected to baseball’s All-Century Team in 1999. Known for his prowess in center field as well, Mays won 12 Gold Gloves and one play made in the 1954 World Series became legendary. While with the New York Giants, he hauled in a deep fly ball off the bat of Vic Wertz in the eight inning of game one. Another iconic image of Americana involves photos of Mays playing stickball with kids in the streets of Harlem. Mays hung around long enough in the game to play two final seasons with the New York Mets. The 42 year old went out on the grandest stage, getting the first hit of the 1973 World Series, which the Mets lost in seven games. Mays was a coach for the Mets immediately following his retirement until 1979. Since 1986, he has been a Special Assistant to the President for the Giants.
