There are so so so many, but I’m just going to leave this one as simple as this: Willie Mays.
The Bay Area News Group has a slideshow of Willie Mays photos up in honor of his 80th birthday tomorrow. The photo above of Willie Mays in 1965 is one of my favorites from the whole set. I tried to find the name of the photographer who took the original image, but Getty Images has the credit listed as a stringer.
You can see the rest (all of the photos are awesome) here, or click through on the photo above.
More Zimmerman(n)s! Zimmerman(n)s for everybody!
