Willie Mays: "controlled abandon"

Willie Mays

Willie Mays had a twenty-two-year career and posted 660 home runs and more than 3,200 hits while hitting over .300 ten times. On defense, he covered the outfield with power and grace. The Sporting News named him Player of the Decade for the 1960s. In the words of Ted Williams: "He played with controlled abandon."
