  • Mays continued to trust Dark. He remained noncommittal about his managerial aspirations. "It's too early to think about managing," he told reporters. "I hope to have four or five more years of playing before I think about managing." In September Argosy, a men's magazine, published a story, "Will Willie Super-Mays Be Baseball's First Negro Manager?" Both Monte Irvin and Roy Campanella thought he would be a good skipper. "He knows the game and is a keen student," Campanella said. "I think if he wanted to manage, he'd be successful because he'd have harmony among his players."
