Description: Willie's Boys captures the first incredible steps of a baseball superstar at the twilight of the Negro Leagues. It is a character-rich narrative of the apprenticeship Mays had at the hands of a diverse group of baseball veterans who taught him the way of the game and the world. His teammates inspired a formative first season for Mays, one that led directly to his rise from obscurity and his later debut for the New York Giants.
