According to Retrosheet,Willie Mays only played two games at SS in his career. Once in 1963 and the other in 1964. Never in an All Star game.

I remember Russell got of to a kinda hot start and was really hyped to be a future superstar.

Yep, you're right. It must have been he took BP there or something.

His other game at SS was in a 22 inning game against the Mets in the second game of a doubleheader. Long day. Gaylord Perry pitches 10 innings in relief. Rumor has it he threw his first spitter in that game.
