Seals Stadium
Seen Helping
Willie Mays
San Francisco, .Calif., Nov. 12—
Manager Bill Rigney of the San
Francisco Giants sees the best
years of Willie Mays “yet to come.”
“I think Willie will hit .360 to
.380 and win the triple crown one
of these seasons,” said Rigney as
Willie took a first look at Seals
Stadium w'here he’ll be playing
next season.
Asked if that big season might
be 1958, Bill commented: “There
would be nothing wrong with that
at all.”
Mays made no predictions ex
cept to voice a belief that Seals
Stadium, where the Giants will play
until their new home is built,
should give more advantage to him
in the hitting department than did
New York's Polo Grounds.
Hits to Center
“I hit a lot to center field and
left center,” he declared. “Some
that were outs there will be hits
National League opponents re
call Willie led the league in hitting
with .345 in 1954 and led in home
runs with 51 in 1955. Last season
he hit .333 with 195 hits and be
came the second man in major
league history to hit 20 or more
doubles, triple sand home runs in
a single season.
Fences here are more equidistant
from home plate than those in the
Polo Grounds. It’s 350 feet to the
right corner along the foul line,
404 to center, and 365 to left. The
Polo Grounds had a layout 257
feet to right, then bellying out to
458 in center and 296 to left.
Rigney says it probably will be
better for all his hitters, since
they won’t have the tendency to
pull their hits aiming at the short
Sentimental Attachment
Mays was asked if he had an
attachment for New York, and re
“A sentimental attachment, yes.
That’s where I started. I sort of
hate to leave it, but I’m coming to
a better hall park for hitting.”
Willie would make no predictions
on how he’ll do next campaign,
parrying such question with, “that
depends on the pitchers.”
Referring to the 1957 race for
batting honori won by Stan Musial,
Willie declared, “The Man is too,
too tough.”
Asked if he was trying for many
bad balls, Mays declared, “If I can
