Legendary Giants centerfielder Willie Mays intros Obama at San Fran funder.
From the President’s remarks:
First of all, it is true that they provide me with this really nice plane in this job. (Laughter.) But as cool as Air Force One is, it is much, much cooler when Willie Mays is with you on the plane. (Laughter.) I am so grateful to him for his support, but more importantly — he mentioned obviously the history that was made with my election. The fact is, is that we don’t make that history unless there are people like Jackie Robinson and Willie Mays, who helped to lay the groundwork — (applause) — helped to lay the groundwork for a more inclusive America. And so we could not be prouder of him, and he could not be more gracious.
