I still got work to do and I'm feeling good."

As Willie Mays turns 90 Thu., remember his road from the Negro Leagues to a nonpareil MLB career. He told ESPN in 1997, "Being black, trying to get to the majors, I had to be, I'd say, 3 or 4 times better than maybe the whites." Bosox scout George Digby told us he recommended him in 1949: "I said this would be a helluva player to break the (team's) color line." Another scout recommended him to the Yankees that year. Neither team integrated for years. Mays signed with the Giants in ‘50.
