Reading Baseball: Willie Mays at 90

Willie Mays with "The Catch" during the 1954 World Series.

This has been a hard year for everyone – including baseball.

Seven Hall of Famers passed away in 2020 and three more -- Hank Aaron, Don Sutton and Tommy Lasorda -- have died this year.

In the latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson celebrates a Hall of Famer who is still with us at the ripe old age of 90.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
