Everyone from Spike Lee to Bill Clinton to Barry Bonds and plenty more came out Monday for a star-studded two-and-a-half-hour tribute to the late Giants great Willie Mays at Oracle Park, paying a joyful homage to the “Say Hey Kid.”

When San Francisco Giants legend Willie Mays died in June at age 93, the Giants’ Negro Leagues tribute game at Mays’s hometown Rickwood Field in Alabama two days later became an homage to Mays. But the Giants are doing many homages to Mays over the course of this season, and the grandest of them all might have been Monday night’s celebration of Willie Mays’s life at Oracle Park, as the Chronicle reports. That celebration brought out Mays’s godson Barry Bonds, former teammate Dusty Baker, filmmaker Spike Lee, and even former president Bill Clinton.

“Willie outworked people and out-thought people,” Clinton said in his address, seen below, according to the Chronicle. “He knew the gifts God gave him, and he took advantage of them.”

Clinton recalled listening to a radio broadcast of Mays’s famed “The Catch” in the 1954 World Series while growing up in Arkansas. Though as the Chron notes, this may have been a tall tale on Clinton’s part, as Clinton would have been only eight years old at the time.

And it was certainly a fib when former SF Mayor Willie Brown told the crowd Monday that “None of us in the city liked the Giants until Willie Mays came over,” as the New York Times reports, considering that Mays had already been with the Giants for seven years when they relocated from New York to San Francisco in 1958.

But we will forgive the old men their foggy recollections of Mays’s groundbreaking legacy, which former president Barack Obama covered in a video address to the stadium. “Whether you were Black or white, everyone could appreciate Willie’s unbridled enthusiasm, his work ethic, his inherent dignity and graciousness,” Obama said in his address. “Willie’s popularity would change racial attitudes in a way that political speeches never could."

MLB.com reports that many baseball greats also came to speak and pay their respects: former Giants manager Dusty Baker, Mays’s Giants teammates Juan Marichal and Felipe Alou, Hall of Famers Reggie Jackson, Dennis Eckersley and Rickey Henderson, and of course, Giants announcer Jon Miller.

“Thank you, Willie,” Barry Bonds said in tribute to his godfather Mays. “Willie, 55 years ago, you put your arms around a 5-year-old boy and said, ‘Hey kid, you’re coming with me.’ And I knew at that moment what I wanted to be. That was a professional baseball player, like my father and Willie.”

Mays dominates the Giants’ and Major League Baseball’s record books, and people forget that he would have put up much gaudier statistics had he not lost two seasons of his career serving in the Korean War. So as KGO points out, Mays got a full military rendition of “Taps” from a US Army band at Monday’s ceremony. KGO also adds that “Approximately 3,400 fans were in the stands and 4,500 people total” for the service.

A few other Willie Mays tributes stood out, so we’re including them below.
