Happy Birthday Willie!

Willie Mays turns 81 today!

The Say Hey Kid isn’t just known in San Francisco, but all around the baseball world.  And today over 41,000 fans at AT&T Park had the honor of celebrating Willie’s 81st birthday with him.  He is a baseball legend that has had such a powerful impact on the game and will always be known for his basket catches and being able to cover a ridiculous amount of ground in the outfield. The When the All Star game came to San Francisco in 2007 I was fortunate enough to be there, and apart of the pre game festivities they honored Willie Mays who played in 24 All Star Games in his Hall of Fame Career. current players have so much respect for Mays that they were asking for autographs and taking pictures with him.  To see ball players acting like kids again around his legend brought tears to my eyes.  It’s a moment I will never forget! Happy birthday Willie!
