Just when you thought the show couldn't get any better, episode 69 comes along with two amazing guests.John Shea had the enviable task of working with, perhaps the greatest baseball player ever, Willie Mays, as they wrote, 24: Life Stories and Lessons from the Say Hey Kid.  The book is filled with wonderful stories and thoughts from the mind of an American icon, treasure, and hero.  Willie Mays, was a major-league center fielder for 22 seasons with the New York Giants, San Francisco Giants, and New York Mets, as well as playing for the Birmingham Black Barons in the Negro Leagues.  He hit 660 home runs, collected 3,283 hits, stole 338 bases, earned 12 Gold Glove Awards, played in 24 All-Star Games, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979.  Not every author could handle the daunting task of working with an icon whose life's work could fill volumes, but Shea, an award-winning national baseball writer at the San Francisco Chronicle and author of four baseball books was more than able to handle the challenge. The interview merely scratches the surface of an amazing book you will be pleased to add to your collection.Doug Scheiding is a true renaissance man.
