Henry Mason was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies ( 1958 , 1960 ). Hank, his nickname, made his big league debut on September 12, 1958 , in Connie Mack Stadium, and the first batter he faced was Willie Mays , a moment he shared with Baseball Almanac:

" Semp had a rough start and got yanked early, Jim did a little better. I didn't expect to be called in that early, and wasn't really ready. Then who did I see waiting for me? Willie Mays . I was not nervous that day, until that moment. I think I threw him four straight balls. Jimmie ( Coker ) came out and asked if I was going to be okay. I said I would be fine, it was just ... Willie Mays . He told me stop pitching to the person you see, just throw the ball to me."
