Another Story from Howard Kellman


"Defense, to me, is the key to playing baseball."

Hall of Famer Willie Mays

Sport Quote Photo

This quote comes from a man who belted 660 home runs!

Willie Mays played in a record 24 All-Star Games; was a two-time National League Most Valuable Player  and played on four Pennant winners, three with the Giants and one with the Mets.

Speaking of defense, Willie won 12 straight Gold Gloves from 1957-68. Willie's rookie year was 1951 and the Gold Gloves were first awarded in 1957.

Willie also said, "Don't get me wrong; I love to hit. Making a great catch and throwing somebody out, that's really a lot of fun!"

Mays belted a Major League record 22 extra inning Home Runs.

Even though Mays' statistics were Incredible, numbers do not capture the essence of Willie Mays.
