Willie Mays Booking Agency Profile

Book Willie Mays for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Nicknamed The Say Hey Kid, Willie Mays is a retired American professional baseball player. His professional baseball career began in 1947 in the Negro American League for the Birmingham Black Barons. With only a year in the minor league, Willie Mays started his major league baseball career with the New York Giants. In 1951, Willie won the Rookie of the Year Award. Willie Mays was also a part of the very first All-African-American outfield in baseball history. This important point in history happened at game one in the 1951 World Series against the New York Yankees. In 1952, Mays was drafted into the United States Army during the Korean War. After a two-year leave, Mays returned back to the major league, and won the Most Valuable Player Award and the Hickok Belt Award as top professional athlete of the year. After a number of years in the major leagues, Mays retired and remained an active personality, continuing to appear in films and other media. Mays appeared in various baseball documentaries, talk shows, and television shows. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and honored with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Barack Obama..

CTI negotiates on behalf of professional event planners and talent buyers for paid appearances!

The Willie Mays manager and agent will only work with us if we present them with funded offers for their client to work your event.
There is low probability to book Willie Mays for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range. We will negotiate with the Willie Mays agent on your behalf, but if your funding is not in place then it will more difficult to book Willie Mays, because they get many offers to work events that are at or above asking price. It is also important to consider the travel costs when researching the Willie Mays booking fee, as additional expenses like this, as well as an entourage of staff and equipment, are not necessarily built-in to the booking fee range shown. If your budget does not factor that in, then there is no benefit for them to want to be hired. We do not personally speak for Willie Mays, but in our experience in booking talent for over 25 years, this is generally the outcome of inadequate funding.
