He was a baseball player. Not basketball.

He went to the big diamond in the sky.

He was a special baseball star, very humble in most interviews. They do not make them that way today. RIP Willie Mays

I was never a big sportsfan, and I know the names of very few athletes, but I always knew Willie Mays.
