  • Bob Hayes

    I have a question about Bob Hayes for some folks on this board older than I am. It comes from a raging debate on a baseball bulletin board. The debate started and fast baseball players. Herb Washington was mentioned and then someone crossed over to football and mentioned Hayes.

    Anyway, one poster claims that in the early 1960's in a collegiate meet, Bob Hayes was handtimed in a heavily wind-aided 100 yard dash in 8.5 seconds. He claims it may have gotten little publicity because it was a meet involving historically African-American colleges (Hayes went to Florida A&M?).

    Has anyone ever heard anything like this?

    very, very doubtful, make the no, it did not happen. If so it would have been publicized.

        NY Mets Fans Only is the bulletin board. The particular thread is on Jose Reyes.

          I agree - it NEVER happened. There would have been enough play in track circles, that it would have gotten out. On the other hand, Herb Washington had an excellent indoor (not outdoor) career with several 5.9 60yds.

                    It was not 8.5, it was 9.0. and the race was at the SIAC (all black championships) on may 12, 1962.
                    Officially Hayes was given 9.3 .......
