Before the 2010 season, the Giants last World Series championship was in 1954, when they were in New York and Willie Mays patrolled centerfield at the Polo Grounds. The Giants swept the Cleveland Indians 4-0 that year. It didn't take quite as long for San Francisco to claim its second world championship in the Bay Area.

What were Willie Mays' fears?

When he was called up to play for the New York Giants in May 1951, the 20-year-old Mays was afraid of failure. He struggled during his first weeks with the team and then tearfully asked manager Leo Durocher to send him back to the minors. Durocher comforted Mays and persuaded him that he would play center field for the Giants for as long as Durocher was there. The rest is history.
