Mickey Mantle Has Fond Memories of Yankee Stadium
It’s not often that an absolute gem of a story just drops in our laps like this one, so we must act accordingly. We have a nice little anecdote from Mickey Mantle suggesting he had some fun with the ladies. Big surprise right? Of course not. But the circumstances, oh, you’re going to love this one. As I posted at FanHouse, the New York Post writes about Sam Marchiano’s self-published memoir:
Marchiano also reveals how Mantle sent a jaw-dropping answer to the Yankees front office when he was asked to recall his fondest memory of Yankee Stadium for the 50th anniversary of “The “House that Ruth Built.” Mantle wrote back: “I got [oral sex] under the right-field bleachers by the Yankee bullpen. It was about the third or fourth inning. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t [bleep] at the time. She was a very nice girl . . .”
She was a lovely lady … and my apologies to her. How bout that one huh? The Mick, knocking ‘em out of the park at the dish and under the bleachers. Quick, somebody cue Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl.” Must be a Yankee thing.
