Mickey Mantle

Profile

Mickey Charles Mantle (1931-1995) is one of the most popular figures in sports history. During what many refer to as the Golden Age of baseball; more young boys idolized The Mick than any other player of the era. As the switch-hitting centerfielder of the New York Yankees, replacing Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio, Mantle showcased an unprecedented combination of speed and power. In fact, Mantle’s tape-measure homeruns thrilled fans for nearly two decades (1951-1969). After injuring his leg during the 1951 World Series by stepping on a drain cover, Mantle’s speed was hindered but he remained one of the fastest players in the game. In 1956, Mantle won the Triple Crown by leading the league in batting average (.353), home runs (52), and RBI (130). That performance helped Mantle earn his first of three AL MVP Awards (1956, 1957 and 1962). This 16-time All-Star won seven World Series titles wearing pinstripes. Limited by injuries throughout his career, Mantle finished with impressive number nonetheless, including a batting average of .298, 536 home runs and 1,509 RBI. Mickey Charles Mantle was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974.
