Willie Mays Quote

I think the key to that particular play was the throw. I knew I had the ball all the time. In my mind, because I was so cocky at that particular time when I was young, whatever went in the air I felt that I could catch. That's how sure I would be about myself. When the ball went up I had no idea that I wasn't going to catch the ball. As I'm running — I'm running backwards and I'm saying to myself, "How am I going to get this ball back into the infield?"
