Yeah, I didn't even realize it until now either. A solid .300 average, .002 over Mantle is what's one of the most impressive things, especially with these past couple of years bringing his average down. I think since he's declined recently, we've all forgotten what he's done during the "glory days". He's top 10 in a whole bunch of important offenseive categories including things like total bases, walks, sac flys, along with the obvious RBI, homer, hits, etc.
I'd retire it.
