Willie May's piece of history

Baseball memories, to those who follow this complex and yet pure sport, last a long time. We lost Yogi Berra recently after a full life of, well, Yogi.

Willie Mays' catch, 61 years ago, was slightly ahead of my time. I do remember buying a model of May's play at the Woolworth's in Yonkers. I was fascinated by "the catch," and had fun assembling the model and painting it. I didn't realize who or what was happening. All I knew were the Mets and the Yankees. Learning about the Dodgers and the Giants would come later, sadly.

Celebrate "the catch."
