Finally got around to this book. It's been out for several years. . Grew up a Mickey Mantle fan. first year I followed baseball was '61. I read the boxscores everyday + memorized the line up - so playing wiffle ball - I could bat down the line up w/ each player's name. The kids down the street were originally from Brooklyn - so there was a great rivalry when we played ! . Anyway - this book has alot of stories in it. Mickey was quite the "hayseed" when he arrived in NY. Signing a bad endorsement contract with only "their" lawyer present. . But Mickey was some whore ! Jeez ! The guy hardly ever went home to his family. The funniest line was, he said, "I led the league six years in a row...with The Clap." "And my wife came in second."
