Notes Regarding Willie (Mays) On “What’s My Line?”

May 5, 2020

As stated 2 days back in the “Willie Mays on What’s My Line?” post, I will add notes so (baby) here goes (ode to Bread’s classic, “I Want to Make It With You”).

Jack Paar was one of the four “What’s My Line?” panelists that July night, filling in for Steve Allen.

It was just under three months later that Mr. Allen began his tenure, as the first host of “The Tonight Show.”

It was Jack Paar, who eventually replaced Allen as the next one.

Mays and the Giants went on to win it all in 1954, sweeping the heavily favored, 111 wins (in a 154 game season) Cleveland Indians in 4 straight games in the World Series.

 

Happy 89th birthday tomorrow to the great Willie Mays. The throw back was the key to the play, another great, Larry Doby can be seen, ever so briefly, going back to second to “tag up,” the proper play. 

Jack Brickhouse makes a great call on television, where oh where, is the radio call?!!
