Willie Mays, one of the greatest players in baseball history, has died at the age of 93.

The San Francisco Giants announced the news on Tuesday, saying that Mays died peacefully.
It is with great sadness that we announce that San Francisco Giants Legend and Hall of Famer Willie Mays passed away peacefully this afternoon at the age of 93.

“My father has passed away peacefully and among loved ones,” Michael Mays said. “I want to thank you all from the bottom of my broken heart for the unwavering love you have shown him over the years. You have been his life’s blood.”

Mays played most of his career with the Giants franchise (1951-72), beginning in New York and then moving to San Francisco. He finished his career playing two seasons with the New York Mets (1972-73). He is regarded as one of the best all-around players of all time, possessing all five tools — the ability to hit for average, power, speed, defensive ability and throwing ability.

Mays was a four-time home run king and one-time batting champion. He led the league in on-base percentage twice, and both slugging percentage and OPS five times.

He was a premier defensive player in center field and won 12 Gold Glove awards, in addition to Rookie of the Year and NL MVP twice.

Mays was the first player ever to hit 300 home runs and steal 300 bases in a career. He was the second player ever to hit 600 career home runs.

Mays was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979, which was his first year of eligibility.

Barry Bonds posts heartfelt tribute to late godfather Willie Mays

Barry Bonds is paying tribute to his late godfather Willie Mays in a post to social media.

The sad news broke on Tuesday that the legendary 24-time MLB All-Star had died at the age of 93. On top of being one of the greatest baseball players ever, Mays was also the godfather of the all-time MLB home runs leader in Bonds.

In a post to his Instagram page, Bonds spoke out on the death of Mays.

“I am beyond devastated and overcome with emotion,” wrote Bonds. “I have no words to describe what you mean to me- you helped shape me to be who I am today. Thank you for being my Godfather and always being there. Give my dad a hug for me. Rest in peace Willie, I love you forever. #SayHey”

Mays was very close with Barry’s father, Bobby, acting as a mentor to Bobby and later becoming teammates with him on the San Francisco Giants from 1968-72. When Barry was born in 1964, Mays was selected as his godfather.

Mays also shared a very close relationship with Barry, especially after Bobby died of cancer in 2003. Mays was present for numerous milestones, including Barry’s record-breaking 756th home run in 2007 and his eventual jersey retirement by the Giants in 2018. The two shared many funny heartwarming moments over the years, too.

Bonds, a seven-time NL MVP, was far from the only notable sports figure to pay tribute to Mays on Tuesday. Countless others took to social media to pay their respects as well.
