Мейс, Уилли

Дата рождения: 6. Май 1931

Уилли Ховард Мейс младший — американский профессиональный бейсболист, выступавший в Главной лиге бейсбола на позиции центрфилда. За свою карьеру играл в командах «Нью-Йорк/Сан-Франциско Джайентс» и «Нью-Йорк Метс». В 1979 году за его заслуги Мейс был включён в бейсбольный Зал славы.

Мейс двадцать четыре раза участвовал в матчах всех звёзд МЛБ и дважды становился самым ценным игроком матча. За свою карьеру он сделал 660 хоум-ранов — третий показатель на то время и четвёртый на текущий момент. Он 12 раз выигрывал награду Голден Глоув. В 1999 году в списке 100 величайших бейсболистов журнала Sporting News он занял второе место, а позже в этом году был включён в сборную звёзд столетия МЛБ. Мейс является одним из пяти игроков НЛ, выбивавших более 100 RBI восемь сезонов подряд.

Цитаты Мейс, Уилли

„I'm just a ballplayer, not a sports writer. I don't compare 'em; I just catch 'em.“

—  Willie Mays

Контексте: Mays said he thought maybe the Skinner catch was a bit better than yesterday's, as well as a catch he made on a ball hit this season by Gus Bell of the Cincinnati Reds. "But I don't want to compare 'em," said Willie. "I'm just a ballplayer, not a sports writer. I don't compare 'em; I just catch 'em."

Reluctantly comparing his famous catch in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series to a pair of catches made during that season on May 26 https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=0akpAAAAIBAJ&sjid=Gk4EAAAAIBAJ&pg=1599%2C3418911&dq=willie-mays-made-star-tling-catch-bob-skinner and June 6 http://www.mediafire.com/view/m5bmpfxdu5ciu3m/%20.png, respectively (the latter "circus catch" made not against Bell, as per Mays' recollection, but rather Chuck Harmon, who directly preceded Bell in the lineup that day); as paraphrased and quoted in "Willie Modestly Scoffs at Raves Over Big Catch" by UPI, in Newsday (September 30, 1954), p. 95

„Any time I'm not playing, I watch the game at home on television. That way I can relax and if I decide to make a catch off my playroom wall, nobody is the wiser.“

Regarding his decision not to attend Game 1 of the 1960 World Series, despite having been in Pittsburgh the previous day for a TV appearance; as quoted in "Change of Pace" by Bill Nunn, Jr., in The Pittsburgh Courier (October 15, 1960), p. 25

„You're not from New York, are you? You can't be from New York. Well, when I broke in, I didn't know many people by name so I would just say, "Say, hey," and the writers picked that up. The writers here in New York can make anything happen, so they made that happen.“

„I think I was the best ballplayer I’ve ever seen. I feel nobody in the world could do what I could do on a baseball field. I hope I’m not saying anything wrong, but you have to think you’re the best. The next one would be Roberto Clemente.“
