Willie Mays goes to the ‘Mr. 3000’ premiere

Baseball hero Willie Mays stops for photographers at the premiere of the movie Mr. 3000. The sports comedy starred Bernie Mac as an aging baseball player who returns to the big leagues at age 47 to chase his 3000th hit. The premiere was at the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles on September 8, 2004. Willie Mays was born in 1931, so he turned 73 the year this photo was taken.
