Description
(One of the New York Times Book Review's 100 Notable Books of 2010) Still vividly remembered for his spectacular over-the-shoulder catch in the 1954 World Series, Willie Mays remains one of the best-loved and respected figures in baseball history. In this authorized biography—which includes 16 pages of black and white photographs—James Hirsch shows Mays's rise from playing in the Negro Leagues as a teen to becoming one of Major League Baseball's greatest all-around players, to his later years as undisputed icon and ambassador for the game. Along the way, the charismatic center fielder navigated the difficulties of racism, spearheading baseball's westward expansion, and pressure to participate in the Civil Rights movement.

"You can make a strong case for Willie Mays as the most complete player in baseball history. And now, at long last, here is the complete and definitive biography of the 'Say Hey Kid'."—Bob Costas
