Willie Mays Makes His Famous Over the Shoulder Catch



Willie Mays famous catch in game one of the 1954 World Series off the bat of Vic Wertz of the Cleveland Indians. A series in which the Giants went on to sweep the Indians. When I started following baseball, Mays was past his prime. The part of the love of baseball became the stories my dad told me of baseball in the 1950's. When watching Mays late in his career dad would often say "You should've seen him in his prime."

  1. They should make a movie about him. He was a great player.

    1. I agree with you on the movie. His best years were behind him before I got to see him play.
