    Willie Mays, the “Say Hey Kid,” excelled in all phases of the game with a boyish enthusiasm and infectious exuberance. His staggering career statistics totaled 3,283 hits and 660 home runs. “You used to think if the score was 5-0, he’d hit a five run homer,” recalled Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson. The New York Giants superstar earned National League Rookie of the Year honors in 1951 and two N.L. Most Valuable Player awards (1954 and 1965). He accumulated 12 Gold Glove awards and played in a record-tying 24 All-Star games. His catch of Vic Wertz’s deep fly ball in the 1954 World Series remains one of baseball’s most memorable moments.

    “You’re going to be a great player, kid,” said Jackie Robinson to Mickey Mantle after the 1952 World Series. Mantle was a star from the start; his talent and boyish good looks earned him iconic status. Despite a series of devastating injuries, Mantle accumulated a long list of impressive accomplishments, finishing his 18-year career with 536 home runs and a .298 batting average. When healthy, Mantle was an excellent defensive outfielder – lightning-fast, with a strong and accurate arm. The switch-hitter won three Most Valuable Player awards and a Triple Crown, contributing to 12 pennants and seven World Series titles for the New York Yankees, while establishing numerous Fall Classic records.

    Dodgers fans loved Duke Snider, “The Duke of Flatbush.” A California-bred centerfielder who declared “I was born in Brooklyn,” Snider led all major leaguers in home runs and RBIs during the 1950s, hitting 40 or more homers each of the last five seasons the Dodgers played at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. A graceful fielder with a picture-perfect swing, Snider anchored six pennant-winning teams and clouted 11 World Series home runs, including four in 1952 and 1955, while driving in 26 runs in the Fall Classic.
