When Orlando “Cha Cha” Cepeda began playing major league baseball in 1958, the San Francisco Giants’ farm director compared the newly acquired player to the great Willie Mays, saying that Cepeda was the best young player he’d seen since the “Say Hey Kid” emerged. The Orlando Cepeda Story follows that sensational year and those following when Cepeda slammed his way into a professional baseball career that would last nearly twenty years and span six team assignments.
