Willie Mays, "The Most Famous Baseball Catch"

It is said that Willie Mays is the greatest baseball player in history, and I guess it has constantly been confirmed by other legendary baseball players. Mickey Mantle once stated that Mays was the best baseball player to have ever lived, and consistently maintained that Mays had the better career. Even players who didn't believe in perfection or being the best felt Willie was #1,"There has never been a perfect ballplayer. [But] Willie Mays came the closest to perfection."Joe Dimaggio. Read more about the great Willie Mays on his website, here.
