|Willie Mays & John Shea. Bob Costas, fwd.|
|Pages/Publication Date:||352 / 2020|
Although Willie Mays is often regarded as the greatest all-around player in baseball history, his stats aren't his true measure. Looking back on his humble Alabama childhood, his stint in the Negro Leagues, service in Korea, and long baseball career, the "Say Hey Kid" offers here the fruits of a lifetime of experience in meeting challenges with positivity and integrity. Presented in 24 chapters to correspond with his universally recognized uniform number, Mays's anecdotal memoir includes his impressions of Jackie Robinson, Yogi Berra, Hank Aaron, Whitey Ford, Stan Musial, and Alvin Dark, and includes an account of his friendship with Barack Obama.
