As far as I’m concerned, Willie Mays is the most complete player in baseball history.   He was the ultimate 5-tool player.   He could do everything well.  He also stayed free of injuries, unlike Mickey Mantle who battled bad knees for his entire career with the Yankees.

Willie Mays had many big games in his glorious career, specially April 30, 1961.    

Mays hit 4 home runs at the old County Stadium in Milwaukee.   He went 4 for 5 with 8 RBIs.   

The Giants beat the Braves, 14-4.
