Willie Mays’ Catch: The Iconic Image of a Hero

Oops!  We had to remove the hero profile you’re looking for because it will soon appear in our new book Heroic Leadership: An Influence Taxonomy of 100 Exceptional Individuals, to be published by Routledge in 2013.

Our contract at Routledge required us to remove many of our profiles on our blog at this time.  But we do have other hero profiles and information about heroes on the menu bar located on the right side of this page.  Check it out!

In the mean time, please accept our apologies.  Here is more information about our new book.

You can click here to return to our HERO home page.  And thanks for visiting!

  1. It would be interesting to see how Mays’ catch stacks up against some of those made by Ken Griffey Jr. and others during the modern era. Mays’ athletic gifts were so far ahead of most any other players during the 1950s that his great plays looked almost superhuman.

    Sadly, he hasn’t always been very cordial with the public despite the ‘sunny’ reputation.
