Willie Mays in Action During Opening Game

(Original Caption) New York: The Catch Of The Season. Willie Mays - The Amazing One - is shown as he made one of the most spectacular catches in World Series history in the 8th inning of today's opener between the Giants and the Cleveland Indians. Running with his back to the plate, Mays made the sensational one handed catch up against the bleacher wall. He raced all the way back to the distant center field bleachers to take Wertz' long fly over his head. It saved at least two runs since first and second were occupied with nobody out. The Giants won, 5-2, in ten innings of play.
