SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Orlando Cepeda are regular visitors around the San Francisco Giants.
When boxing icon Muhammad Ali showed up in the clubhouse Tuesday to tout his Athletes for Hope charity campaign, players, coaches, clubbies and even the general manager stood in line for photos with the 68-year-old former heavyweight champion.
Pitcher Dan Runzler called it “great” to meet the guy known as “The Greatest.” Ali, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease and doesn’t speak, lives in Scottsdale.
Athletes for Hope has more than 1,000 members in 50 sports committed to community service and other charitable activities.
