  • Jimmy Cannon and the Giants

    Legendary sports writer Jimmy Cannon once wrote a column in the New York Journal American about Wille Mays leaving New York. It began something like, "You're Willie Mays and from the Battery to the Bronx, the fog horns moan for you." Does anyone remember this column and know where I could get a copy?

    I don't know if this is the specific article you're looking for, but I would assume the latter article is a callback to this one:

      Thanks for getting back and thanks for forwarding the book. The column I have in mind was written after the Giants left New York--or perhaps as they were about to leave. I'm sure it was in the Journal-American because my family didn't get or read the Post. It was classic Jimmy Cannon--Runyonesque and over the top, but I loved it. One of these days I will go to the Library of Congress and go throuh the microfilm copies of the Journal Americam
