Willie Mays Aikens #412

A hero of the 1980 World Series, who would later end up in prison for drugs. This is a nice first baseman in action shot not sure if it is from a game or pre-game practice shot. Back Facts: Named after Willie Mays because he was born at about the same times Mays made his historic World Series catch off Vic Wertz.

  1. A better story is the follow-up. After serving his prison time, he cleaned up and the Royals gave him a chance to come back to baseball. He has been a minor league instructor now for the last couple of years and from what I understand is doing a great job and is very appreciative for this second chance.
