List of Willie Mays quotes.

If you can do that - if you run, hit, run the bases, hit with power, field, throw and do all other things that are part of the game - then you're a good ballplayer.


I was very blessed with a good body. Never got hurt. Never was in the hospital. The only time I was in the hospital was when I would get exhausted a little bit, and go in for a check-up or something.


I played with the Birmingham Black Barons. I was making 500 at 14. That was a lot of money in those days.
