ALERT: Willie Mays on TV tonight
Willie Mays will be interviewed by Bob Costas on the MLB network TONIGHT at 8 pm, 11 pm, and 2 am eastern time.
What a great interview this was. 2 hours of Willie Mays in the studio, and with an audience along the walls (which I don't remember seeing during other interviews).
Besides clips of Willie from 1951 to 1973, there were taped comments from Buck O'Neill, Joe Torre, and Juan Marichal (also briefly from Don Zimmer, Willie McCovey, Bob Gibson, and Joe Black).
Don't miss the funny stories involving Bob Gibson, Gaylord Perry, Ken Boyer, Joe Torre, Mickey Mantle, and Donna Reed (yes, Donna Reed)!
Two very touching moments (both in the last 15 minutes):
1. Willie showing emotion while reminiscing about the late Bobby Bonds (during a discussion of Barry Bonds)
2. Bob Costas' closing comments to Mays.
Don't miss this show!
