Wille McGee at Dodger Town

Willie Dean McGee (born November 2, 1958 in San Francisco, California) is a former center and right fielder in Major League Baseball who spent the majority of his 18-year career playing for the St. Louis Cardinals. McGee was recognized as one of the outstanding players of his time, having won the 1985 National League MVP award, batting titles in both 1985 and 1990, and three Gold Glove Awards.
Willie Dean McGee, one of seven children, grew up in a devoutly religious household. His father Hurdice was both a machinist at the Oakland Naval Yards and a deacon in the Pentecostal church.[1] Hurdice did not want his son to play any organized sports on Sundays, so McGee slipped out of the house on Sunday afternoons to pursue his passion for sports.[1] Only much later did McGee learn Hurdice knew of his covert actions, but decided to let his son go on anyway.
Upon graduating from Harry Ells High School in Richmond, California in 1976, McGee was selected in the 7th round (152nd overall) of the June amateur entry draft by the Chicago White Sox. McGee declined the White Sox contract offer and opted instead to attend Diablo Valley Community College.[1] A few months later, McGee was selected by the New York Yankees in the 1st round (15th overall) of the 1977 January amateur entry draft. From 1977 through 1981, McGee remained tucked away in the Yankees' minor league farm system, ascending no higher than the AA level during that time.
McGee's big break came when he was acquired by the St. Louis Cardinals from the Yankees' farm system on October 21, 1981 in a trade for pitcher Bob Sykes. In 1982, he was briefly assigned to the AAA Louisville Redbirds prior to being called up to St. Louis. In his rookie year, McGee batted .296, with 4 home runs and 56 runs batted in during the regular season.
In the 1982 postseason, the 23-year-old McGee was quickly thrown into the national spotlight during St. Louis' run to a World Series title. His performance in Game 3 of the 1982 World Series ranks among the best in Series history. Not known for his power, McGee connected for 2 home runs and also delivered spectacular defensive play in center field, capped by a leaping snare of a would-be 9th-inning Gorman Thomas home run that secured the Cardinals 6-2 victory. McGee became the third rookie to hit two home runs in a World Series game, joining two New York Yankees: Charlie Keller and one of the announcers for the 1982 Series, Tony Kubek (Andruw Jones joined them in Game 1 of the 1996 World Series). McGee was an integral part of the Cardinals' unlikely Series win over the power-hitting Milwaukee Brewers, who were nicknamed "Harvey's Wallbangers" after team manager Harvey Kuenn.

During the 1980s, McGee, along with Cardinals teammates Ozzie Smith, Tom Herr and Vince Coleman, would exemplify "Whiteyball", a style of baseball named after Cardinals manager Whitey Herzog. This style of baseball took advantage of St. Louis' spacious Busch Stadium and placed strong emphasis on fundamentals, defense, speedy baserunning and smart situational in-game play.

McGee hit for the cycle on June 23, 1984 in a classic Cardinals vs. Cubs matchup at Wrigley Field. The game was televised as NBC's Game of the Week. As the Cards led going into the bottom of the 9th, McGee was announced as NBC's "Player of the Game". Ultimately however, McGee's incredible performance in the game was overshadowed in baseball history books by Cubs 2nd Baseman, Ryne Sandberg, who delivered a dramatic game-tying solo homer off of St. Louis' dominant Closer, Bruce Sutter in the bottom of the 9th and then topped it with another game-tying 2-run shot - again off Sutter - in the bottom of the 10th. The Cubs eventually won the battle 12-11 in the bottom of the 11th on a bases-loaded single by Dave Owens. The game is now referred to by some as the Sandberg Game.[3] No matter what nickname is applied, the game showcased two spectacular offensive performances by opposing players, as Sandberg ended the game going 5 for 6 with 2 runs, 7 runs batted in and 2 game-tying home runs, while McGee ended the game going 4 for 6 with 3 runs, 6 runs batted in and a cycle.

In 1985, McGee ranked first in the National League in batting average (.353, the highest mark by a switch hitter in NL history), hits (216) and triples (18). He also ranked third in the National League in runs scored (114) and stolen bases (56). Additionally, he earned a Gold Glove Award and a Silver Slugger Award, and was voted to the National League All-Star team. For his superb offensive and defensive performance, McGee was named the 1985 NL Most Valuable Player. McGee's efforts help propel the Cardinals into the postseason, where St. Louis defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL Championship Series. However, St. Louis came up short in the 1985 World Series, as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Cardinals in seven games. The Series was known as the "I-70 Series", named after Interstate Hig

I made a set of three rings for a customer in white gold. This photograph is an attempt to indicate the colour difference between 'raw' white gold and silver - the ring at the top of my finger being silver and a brighter, whiter colour. Unplated white gold is actually a warm grey colour - something commercial jewellery outlets often neglect to mention! The white finish they sell is usually the result of rhodium plating, something that will need to be re-done over time.
