New York Giants centerfielder Willie Mays gets his first big league hit, a homer off of future Hall of Famer Warren Spahn, after starting his career 0-12. Mays will hit 17 more off of Spahn, the most he’d hit off any one pitcher in his career. Mays would go one to have arguably the greatest career in the history of the sport. Mays made 24 All-Star teams, won NL Rookie of the Year in 1951. He won two NL MVPs (1954 & 1965) and he finished in the top six in MVP voting ten times. Mays also won 12 Gold Gloves. He is currently fifth on the all-time home runs list with 660.
