Time just released about 20 unpublished, never-before-seen images of Willie. Mostly game and ballpark stuff, but the pics of him in his old apartment are really the most interesting, I think.

Those are great photos. I guess Willie didn't have a 16000 square foot home in Arizona, or wherever it is Hawk is talking about all the time. I don't know if he smoked or not, but he sure looked in very good shape to me.

Great, great photos. I love taking a look back at times long past, especially when I wasn't around at that time. I wish there was one huge resource for pictures like this that was searchable. I'm looking at you MLB!

I noticed that too, but he was drinking milk and eating a small sandwich, not the Coke and Big Macs that people eat today. :D:

Did you catch the caption of the photo were he is about to hit Monte Irvin in the face and Irvin commented that Mays would drink a bunch of bottles of Coke every night?

I don't believe a single story Hawk tells.

LOL no I didn't see that one. I don't know what constitutes a "bunch", but he must have been drinking the traditional 6.5 ounce bottles. Or burning some serious calories!
