Willie Mays, the "Say Hey Kid” who slugged home runs, raced around the bases and patrolled center field with graceful abandon in New York and San Francisco during a two-decade Major League Baseball career, has died. He was 93.

His death, on Tuesday, was announced by the San Francisco Giants and his family.

"My father has passed away peacefully and among loved ones,” Mays’ son Michael said in a statement.
