520 "The legendary Willie Mays shares the inspirations and
influences responsible for guiding him on and off the
field in this reflective and inspirational memoir. "It's
because of giants like Willie that someone like me could
even think about running for President." -President Barack
Obama Widely regarded as the greatest all-around player in
baseball history because of his unparalleled hitting,
defense and baserunning, the beloved Willie Mays offers
people of all ages his lifetime of experience meeting
challenges with positivity, integrity and triumph in 24:
Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid. Presented
in 24 chapters to correspond with his universally
recognized uniform number, Willie's memoir provides more
than the story of his role in America's pastime. This is
the story of a man who values family and community,
engages in charitable causes especially involving children
and follows a philosophy that encourages hope, hard work
and the fulfillment of dreams. "I was very lucky when I
was a child. My family took care of me and made sure I was
in early at night. I didn't get in trouble. My father made
sure that I didn't do the wrong thing. I've always had a
special place in my heart for children and their well-
being, and John Shea and I got the idea that we should do
something for the kids and the fathers and the mothers,
and that's why this book is being published. We want to
reach out to all generations and backgrounds. Hopefully,
these stories and lessons will inspire people in a
positive way." -Willie Mays"--|cProvided by publisher.
