Willie Mays, the legendary baseball player, was on the Daily Show last night because of the new biography James Hirsch has written about him. Jon Stewart was clearly delighted to have Mays on his show, repeating that it was "truly an honor" to talk to him. Mays shared some great stories from his baseball years, from dealing with racism -- "Every time I heard a name, I hit it further" -- to his friendship with his manager's seven-year-old son, who kept him out of trouble.
