Willie Mays to be honored with cable car named for him - SFGate

When do they name an Uber after him?

“Like San Francisco cable cars, the legend of Willie Mays is iconic,” said Ed Reiskin, director of transportation for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. “While it may not move as fast as Mr. Mays, cable car 24 will forever pay tribute to the Say Hey Kid as it climbs San Francisco’s majestic hills.”
