If you're got MLB Extra Innings or the MLB.TV packages, tonight's Rockies-Giants game from AT&T Park in San Francisco looks like a good one. And not just because of the interesting pitching matchup between shockingly winless Ubaldo Jimenez and Matt Cain.
The Giants are throwing a big party for legendary center fielder Willie Mays, who somehow turns 80 today. Wasn't he just patrolling the outfield?
MLB.com has put together a huge birthday package on Mays filled with videos, and retrospective columns. It's definitely worth spending a few minutes checking it out.
In today's San Francisco Chronicle, Mays tells columnist John Shea," I had a good year because the kids had a good year." He's referring, of course, to the 2010 Giants and their run to a World Series title I covered last fall in Texas.
