On May 22, 1963 at Yankee Stadium. Bill Fischer tried to blow a fastball past Mickey with the score tied in the eleventh.
Bad idea. Mickey stepped into it and, with perfect timing, met the ball with the sweet spot of his bat, walloping it with everything he had. Mickey’s hit seemed destined to precede Sputnik into space.
Just as the ball was about to leave the park, it struck the facade mere inches from the top with such force, it bounced all the way back to the infield. They estimated the ball traveled 734 feet as Mickey circled the bases. This is your chance to learn from the Mick, how to do it.
Mantle wrote “good hitters are not born, they are made.” And this is your chance to learn, straight from Pinstriped Yankee #7, whose number, along with the Babe’s was retired forever, the secrets to hitting with a few tips on fielding, throwing, and running.
