Defining Moments

"You watched Wilie Mayes and like Michael Jordan you couldn't keep your eyes off him. He did everything well."

One of my favorite quotes from a humble guy... baseball great Willie Mayes on Charlie Rose when asked about his strategy on the field "They threw it and I hit it.  They hit it and I caught it."

A mentor of Willie Mayes said to him upon entering professional baseball "You're going to have to show yourself that you can handle all the stuff that is going to come at you."

"Greatness is doing what you have to do so others can do what they need to."

Check out the book -- Willie Mays: The Life, The Legend on Amazon. It is an extraordinary story.
