Yale Confers an Honorary Degree on Willie Mays

Yale University has conferred an honorary degree on Willie Mays. It's good to see that one of the greatest players ever is getting attention for being something other than being Barry Bonds' godfather. Mays for years had to suffer the indignity of Joe DiMaggio's insistence of being announced as baseball's "Greatest Living Ballplayer" at every function he was introduced. Mays at that time deserved, and, given the taint on his beloved godson, probably still deserves, that title. Way to go to the "Say Hey" kid!
