    I went to the website today, the anniversary of his death, and it brings back so many memories. I grew up a baseball fan and was mostly a Cardinal fan but my exposure to the Yankees, Mickey, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, Tony Kubek, Bobby Richardson, Clete Boyer, Elston Howard etc etc was by TV, baseball cards and especially the 1961 season of home runs. I watched very intensely the 1964 series between Yankees and Cardinals. I was always a huge fan of the Mick and I collected all his baseball cards and all the Yankees’ cards. He was such a great baseball player and he was always smiling and joking when you saw him on TV or in the newspaper. I later learned how he played hurt so much. My respect for him only increased. He was the man and perhaps the greatest baseball player of all the Yankees. I miss those days when baseball was so much more so a game and when you looked forward to the game of the week to get a chance to see the greats of that time play. He will always have a special place in my heart. Again I think he was one of the all time greats and he will never be forgotten. Thanks for the memories.

    I was born in Miami Ok. on 05/01/1946. My father worked at the Eagle Pitcher mines back in the forties,and on days off with friends would often get together
    at the mantles house because mutt mantle and my father worked together in the mines,and also because the Mantles owned a big radio that they all listened
    to the grand old opry every week .I grew up with my DaD talking about Mickey and Mutt and so on… now that I am near 70 I still have those great memories
    with my father talking of Mutt and Mickey and the dangers of working in those mines as Pitcher Ok. is just about a ghost town..but all thru the 50’s and 60’s we
    never missed a Yankees game on TV.

    I have been a Mickey Mantle fan all my life- he was my boyhood hero.I grew up in London Ontario and my father used to let me listen to Yankee ballgames in his 53 Buick as the house radio wouldn’t pick them up- used to lay on the front seat waiting for the mighty Mick to come to the plate. When I was at bat I was Mickey Mantle swinging for the fences. Can’t imagine growing up without him as an example- he was a great ballplayer-nice to see pics of his family.
