Willie Mays is a retired Major League Baseball (MLB) player who spent the majority of his career with the New York/San Francisco Giants. Known as “The Say Hey Kid,” Mays won two MVP awards, made 24 All-Star Game appearances and hit 660 home runs. He was a center fielder who won a record-tying 12 Gold Gloves from 1957-1968 (despite the award being introduced six seasons into his career). The 1954 World Series won by the Giants is best remembered for “The Catch,” an over-the-shoulder running grab made by Mays. He is one of the greatest baseball players of all time.
