Many speculative stories surround the question of exactly how Hall of Famer Willie Mays, Jr. became the “Say Hey Kid,” but one thing is for sure: the name stuck! “The Say Hey Kid” statue in San Francisco depicts Mays' reaction after hitting a baseball. His eyes gaze skyward, his fingers are loosened as if about to drop the bat, and his cleats dig deep into the ground. The bronze statue looks like it’s about to turn and run for first base.
