happy birthday willie mays

During a game between the Birmingham Barons and a barnstorming team (led by Roy Campanella), Willie Mays made a deep throw from center field and threw out Larry Doby at home plate, prompting an impressed Campanella to urge the Dodgers to sign the young outfielder. The Dodgers scout, however, lamented that Mays could not hit a curveball and did not sign him.

Happy birthday to The Say Hey Kid, Willie Mays! ✨🎂🎈

Happy birthday Willie Mays!!! My personal favorite Giant of all time, the Say Hey kid is a 24 time All Star, 12 time Gold Glove Award winner, 2 time All Star Game MVP, and a World Series champion. He is famous for The Catch during the 1954 World Series, his overall personality, and wearing his cap too small. Happy birthday Willie Mays, and a great deal more!!!!!
