Mickey Mantle Shares Billy Martin ….. Youtube

If you watch the video on full screen there’s not a thing to prevent you from imagining you’re sitting right there as he tells his story.  Mickey Mantle was my teen-age heart throb and it never really went away.  Maybe it was that soft spoken southern drawl or maybe it was just his dang good looks.  But no matter, I wasn’t the only one.  Thousands became immediate fans of the shy, freckle-faced  baseball player from Oklahoma.   Here he tells an entertaining story about his friend, Billy Martin, that has very little to do with baseball!

    One of the best Billy Martin stories ever, shared by none other than The Mick. Found it on Garlic Fries and Baseball Blog. Enjoy!

  3. Bill, thanks . I think you’re the first reblog I’ve had, though I’ve posted quite a few here. Thanks again ~ R.
