    Without a doubt, a great photo of Danny and my favorite player or all time. Did you know that Mickey had a higher stolen base percentage than both Willie Mays and Roberto Clemente? When he needed to steal a base, he could. Just saying.

    Your Dad retired the Spring before I was born. I am from Cincinnati and there is no reason I should be a Mickey Mantle fan, but I am. thank you for sharing him with us, still.

  3. What a beautiful picture of a dad loving his son! I have to say that I really have never seen a son look anymore like his father than does Danny…so handsome. My poem is just a tribute to a fellow Oklahoma that belonged to the baseball and celebrity world. I remember seeing him on Good Morning America I think when he was needing a liver transplant…so sad…but his attitude seemed so wonderful.

    I was born in 1967 one year before Mick retired. I grew up loving baseball more than life! I can’t even look at a Yankee uniform without thinking of Mickey Mantle! Clearly one of the greatest players that ever graced the old Yankee Stadium! Mickey.. from the way you carried yourself up to the plate, to the way you ran bases after a home run. You are classic in every sense of the way the ball players of old played the game. Wished I could have been there to see you play live.
    From the old footage to the prints I have on the wall of my office of you, you are greatly loved in this household! You are missed Mickey!!

    Was a rabid Mickey Fan beginning in 1952. Followed the yankee games on radio and Tv religously. Had two Sons, David and Kelly who were also Mick and Yankee fans.Am now 81 yrs. old and lost my Son Dave at age 59 as he was an Alcoholic.

    Mickey along with Jim Shoulders and OU Football (Bud Wilkerson) brought Oklahoma out of the dust bowl era into national prominence. Mick and Jim were childhood idols/heroes making me proud to be an Okie. Watching Mick and Roger Maris during the HR feat was another highlight of his career. What a man; what a legacy.

    Great picture of the greatest baseball player ever and a son who lives to honor his Father. So good talking with you today, Danny. While I never met your Dad, I feel the connection by talking with you. To this day, my life is constantly enriched by the Mick. Number 7 is and always be my favorite number. By faith, I will meet your Dad at Heavens Gates. Most likely, there’ll be a long line waiting for autographs.
