Goodbye, Willie!

Willie Mays, one of the greatest baseball players in history, passed away last Tuesday at the age of 93. When I was growing up, everyone knew Mays, and everyone loved to watch him play. He was fast! He was exciting! He did things that other players couldn’t do. If you look at the numbers, you can see how good he was. He hit 660 home runs, and his career batting average was over .300. He got more than 3,000 career hits, and he was a master of stealing bases. However, he is probably best known for his defense, catching and throwing the ball. One of his catches at a World Series was so good that it is still known as “the catch.”    (122 words)
