"Inside the Clubhouse: The Say Hey Kid" features legendary Giant Willie Mays as we've never seen him. SFG Productions gives us exclusive footage of Mays' 80th birthday luncheon at the Fairmont in San Francisco, as well as the May 6th celebration at AT&T Park, not to mention extensive behind-the-scenes access to #24 and the Giants organization. Joe Morgan calls Mr. Mays the most generous ballplayer he's ever met, and "Inside the Clubhouse" shows us why this statement is true: from tales of Mays' gifts to his teammates and friends back in Alabama, to charity events with his friendly rival Tommy Lasorda, to his headlining work with the Willie Mays Boys & Girls Club at Hunters Point, Mays' generosity spans eras and generations.
"Inside the Clubhouse: The Say Hey Kid" travels to where it all began, the Polo Grounds in New York, capturing original Giants fans' overwhelming emotions upon meeting the Say Hey Kid, and Mays himself speaks to future San Francisco Giants greats at the Giants' annual Conditioning Camp at AT&T Park. Mays values his role as a mentor to players on the current Giants roster, just as he relished his local celebrity as Stickball champ on the streets of Harlem during his early playing years. And Mays' appeal is not confined to the ballpark, even the President of the United States is an enormous fan, as we will see on "Inside the Clubhouse: the Say Hey Kid."
