Happy Anniversary Willie

Today is the 50th anniversary of Willie McCovey's debut with the San Francisco Giants. Here is a good article about Willie's debut.

I didn't see Willie play until the end of his career, but he could still swing the bat. I saw him hit a towering home run one year in the late 70s in an exhibition game against the Dodgers at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.

Thanks for the memories Willie.
