WILLIE MAYS by Gene Schoor


Email this review


Willie Mays, the young Giant batter, made baseball history at an early age. Not only is he a fantastically facile ball player, fast, relaxed, and agile, he is loved by the fans for his good natured modesty and his eagerness to help his team mates. In this account, written by the author of many other baseball biographies, the player's unique charm is made manifest from the earliest accounts of him as an infant, fanatically rolling a ball across the floor of his aunt's home. Fans will enjoy this, both for the clear accounts it gives of significant games and for the winning portrait it gives of one of America's favorite figures of the diamond.
