I knew after the fourth inning that I would throw a no-hitter. I had complete command. In the last inning I don't care who was up -- Willie Mays, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle -- nobody was getting a hit off me.

We drew 438,000 people in Candlestick in 1975 (actually 522,925). The only time people came out was when I would pop off and say something. It was show business.

If you've got a guy who can hit well from both sides of the plate, he's the greatest weapon you can have.

Check all the records from 1958 to 1970 and we won a hell of a lot of ball games. We won 92 or 93 games a year, but somebody always won more. It seems that some ball club was having a great year and we couldn't get over the hump. At times, I think we didn't manufacture runs like we should have. We kind of lived and died by the home run. We didn't always play good situational baseball. By that I mean moving the runners along, hit and run, the little things which win ballgames.

Greaseball, greaseball, greaseball. That's all I throw him and he still hits them. He's the only player in baseball who consistently hits my grease. He sees the ball so well, I guess he can pick out the dry side.

Baseball is a game, yes. It is also a business. But what it most truly is is disguised combat. For all its gentility, its almost leisurely pace, baseball is violence under wraps.

a.k.a. Say-Hey Kid

I can't tell you about moments because I wasn't into that. I just played every day and enjoyed what I was doing. When I made a great catch it was just routine. I didn't worry about it. Winning was important. Winning.

Putting it all into perspective

Willie Howard Mays
San Francisco Giants
OF
a.k.a. Say-Hey Kid

He had a routine to everything he did. The way he set his chair, the way he left his towel on the chair. The way he smoked a cigarette. He'd come back into the clubhouse and smoke a cigarette, take like three puffs and put it out. He had so many rituals, I don't know how the hell he remembered everything. I played with him in winter ball, and just going out to the mound and back to the dugout, there were ten things that he did, every inning. It was crazy.

I'm glad I didn't have a fourth pitch.
