Willie Mays

Hall of Fame baseball player Willie Mays passed away on Tuesday at the age of 93. The San Francisco Giants and the MLB announced the news yesterday.

“All of Major League Baseball is in mourning today as we are gathered at the very ballpark where a career and a legacy like no other began,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said. “Willie Mays took his all-around brilliance from the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro American League to the historic Giants franchise. From coast to coast, Willie inspired generations of players and fans as the game grew and truly earned its place as our National Pastime.”

Mays began his professional career in 1948 in the Negro Leagues. He was voted into the Hall of Fame in 1979. He spent over 20 years in the Major Leagues where he had 660 home runs, 3,293 hits, a .301 batting average, and was the 1951 Rookie of the Year.
