Remembering The Mick

Today marks ten years since the death of one of baseball's greats, Mickey Mantle. I am not old enough to remember him as a player, but he was a hero to many friends and relatives.

The Mick had remarkable speed and power from both sides of the plate, and his Midwestern charm was a perfect match for 1950's America. I wish I had seem him play in his prime.
