“If somebody came up and hit .450, stole 100 bases and performed a miracle in the field every day, I’d still look you in the eye and say Willie was better” Hall of Fame manager Lou Durocher once remarked about Hall of Fame center fielder Willie Mays. Durocher should know, as he managed the New York/San Francisco Giants during Mays most prolific years. Spending most of his career with the Giants, Mays was selected to 20 All-Star Games, tied for second most in MLB history. Known for his leaping and diving defensive plays, the most famous of which is simply called “The Catch” where he made an over-the-shoulder catch in front of the center field wall at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan during Game 1 of the 1954 World Series against the Cleveland Indians. The 12-time Golden Glove Award winner’s 7,095 putouts are an MLB record, and the 1951 National League Rookie of the Year retired after 22 seasons with a .302 batting average with 660 home runs and 1,903 RBI. Mays was enshrined in Cooperstown in 1979.
