Willie was playing in his second year in the major leagues. Millions of baseball fans watched on their new television sets and were utterly amazed at this great play. Fans were talking for months about this wonderful baseball player. Baseball writers stated this young Mays was the greatest player they had ever seen. Thanks for the memories.
