Cecil Whig - - INSIDEBASEBALL -

San Fran­cisco’s Wil­lie Mays be­comes the Na­tional League’s all-time home run leader when he hits his 512th ca­reer blast off Dodger starter Claude Os­teen, break­ing Mel Ott’s mark set in 1946. Mays will play through 1973, when he re­tires at 42 with 660 ca­reer home runs, a mark that cur­rently ranks fifth in MLB his­tory.
