McFarlane - Cooperstown Series 2 - Willie Mays
If there are five "tools" in baseball then Willie Mays must have been a carpenter. The Giants' star outfielder excelled in all facets of the game -- hitting for power and average, stealing bases, fielding and throwing with brilliance. He was the National League Rookie of the Year in 1951, played in 20 All-Star games, earned 12 Gold Gloves and two National League MVP awards. Mays played the game at a higher level and helped turn a generation of wide-eyed kids into baseball fans.
