The Willie Mays Song

That Giants Kid is Great!

Today’s Mop Up Duty mp3 is none other than Say Hey (The Willie Mays Song)

Recorded in 1954 by The Treniers, Willie Mays sings background vocals while Quincy Jones directs the orchestra. It is a real catchy tune that I find myself singing in the shower from time to time. For those of you who don’t know, Willie Mays may or may not be the greatest Centre Fielder of all time and he played for the San Francisco Giants. All you need to know about Willie Mays can be summed up in this quote from Dodgers’ pitcher Sandy Koufax:

He was probably the best all-around player when you take everything into consideration. It seemed like that Willie never made a mistake

In other words, he was just a big stud.
