Tributes are pouring in for Willie Mays following news that the Major League Baseball great died on Tuesday at the age of ninety three.

Fans left flowers at Mays’ statue in San Francisco, California and remembered the Hall of Famer as a “legend and pioneer” of the game.

Mays was an electrifying centerfielder during a 23-year playing career in which he established himself as one of the greatest all-around players of all time.

Mays, who was known as the “Say Hey Kid” because of his standard greeting, spent most of his career with the Giants, six in New York and fifteen in San Francisco, before finishing up with the New York Mets in 1972 and 1973.
