...One of the greatest of all-time, the 'Say-Hey Kid' turns 75 today. . . . now would you please explain how you managed to make 'The Catch' off Vic Wertz in the '54 series?

Belated Happy B-day to Willie!!

For my money, Mays was the greatest player ever. And I'm a Dodgers fan.

With all due respect to Hammerin' Hank, you put Willie in Fulton County Stadium and Aaron in the 'Stick, and we have a different homerun champion.

Incidentally, it would put a whole different spin on Barry's pursuit since Willie is his godfather.
