This article from September 26, 1973 was written the day after Willie Mays announced his retirement and was honored by Mets fans at Shea Stadium. It talks about how Mays spent time in the minors playing for the Minneapolis Millers before he got called up. They were one of two teams (St. Paul Saints) that were the closest thing we had to big league ball in Minnesota until 1961. For my money, Mays was the best all-around player of all time. On a side note, Bill Hengen was writer, editor, and WWII war corespondent over his six decades at the paper. Legendary in his own right.
