    What does one do when a baseball legend dozes off during a sleepover?

    If you are Barry Bonds, take a selfie of course.

    The 50-year-old all-time home run king posted a photo of his godfather, Giants Hall of Famer Willie Mays, who appears to be sleeping dressed in a very classic Hugh Hefner-esque silk-striped pajamas.

    At first glance, the Instagram picture could be confused with a recent trend of taking selfies at a funeral with the deceased in a casket, but the accompanying caption confirms Say Hey Willie had just turned in for the night.

    Mays, 84, was voted one of four “Greatest Living Players,” by baseball fans and honored Tuesday during a ceremony at the 2015 All-Star game.
