Nicely illustrated with nine images, this article briefly tells the story of baseball's legendary centerfielder, Willie Mays (b. 1931) and the Summer of 1954 when sportswriters credited him alone for having raised the athletic standards of his team, The New York Giants (the team won the World Series that year):

"A 23-year-old Alabaman with a laugh as explosive as his bat, Willie has electrified N.Y. Giants fans as no man has done since Mel Ott (1909 1958)... Statistics don't begin to give a real picture of Willie's value. He adds drama to baseball in a way that defies fiction."
