  1. If New York Sports fans love you. They remember you and would cheer for you. There seems to be far more passion with East Coast compared to everywhere except St. Louis, great fans there too. Almost every year that Willie played in San Francisco, he always mentioned his time back in New York.

  2. I was at old timers day at Shea Stadium 1979. Willie Mays received a standing ovation that lasted for at least five minutes. no one would stop applauding until the say hey kid made a speech.

  3. Mays remained immensely popular in New York long after the Giants had left. I remember when he came to the Mets. He got the loudest cheers of anyone whenever he was in the starting lineup.

  4. Well he played for so long in neighboring San Francisco, but that was nice to see the opposing A's fans do that for such an all around great player.

  5. if he didnt hit in the old Candlestick Park with all the swirling winds he would have hit more home runs then anyone.

  6. I have to ask…why the hell was Willie batting 3rd? I agree that he was the greatest CF ever but he seemed pretty badly washed up in '73 and had only played in one game in the NLCS
