Willie Mays in the 1973 World Series is a textbook example of athletes aging not-so gracefully. Viewers were actually sympathetic because of his play and media members cited it. He retired after that Series. It probably doesn't resonate in contemporary discussions but for subject matter in a historic context, there are few examples more prominent considering the center stage of the event.
