    This photo has Mickey batting left handed even though we all know that he this homer right handed.

    I e-mailed this website many years ago and told them the picture they used was incorrect, as Mickey hit the ball right-handed ……… they said they used the picture because it was the best one they had at the time and they knew it was incorrect …. no idea why they have not corrected the picture

      Unfortunately, there is no known photo of that actual home run swing of Mickey’s. I wish there were… We would definitely use it.

        I got to see Roy and Ray Mantle play for the McAlester Rockets in the early 1950s. I was about 10 years old. Mickey Mantle was always my Hero. I was a switch hitter in High School and after High School because of Mickey.

    Even though it’s not the actual home run, it’s still a great pic because it shows the bohemian guy in left.

    I met Mickey in Dallas years ago after he had long retired. I said to him “I saw you play a lot of games,” to which he replied “It was a lot of fun.” That was the perfect response! It was great to hear baseball was a lot of fun for him.
