Willie Mays, one of a kind. 

Today we learned that our good friend Willie Mays has been awarded our nations highest honor for a civilian – the Presidential Medal of Freedom. We could not be happier or more proud of this recognition for our dear friend Willie.  Willie has been both an inspiration and role model for our family through multiple generations. He has been a man that has always had time to spend helping young kids understand the importance of a good education, a solid work ethic and when all else fails, he has been there to get his own checkbook out to make certain that kids from all walks of life have an opportunity to succeed. Willie is undoubtably one of the greatest athletes to ever play the game of baseball, but to those of us that know him personally, he will always be so much more than that. Congratulations Willie, we are proud to call you our friend.

    Very well said Randy! I remember listening to the Giants games on the little radio Dad brought back from Tokyo. My grandpa (Dad’s dad) and I always knew something exciting would happen when Willie played, at bat or in the field. Ah yes, those were the good old days, before steroids, when the man was all that mattered.
