Sad Day

On this day in 1969 Mickey Mantle retired from baseball. He was my hero. Went to Cooperstown to see him and Whitey Ford get inducted into the HOF


I wore number 7…

So did my son….from tee ball through college….

I started showing him MM highlights when he was about five.

He also loved Biggio :seven:.

Biggio ws great… But I’m taking Tuve!

Coincidentally, my lucky/favorite number is 27… I started wearing that number in high school.

I stopped playing after 10th grade… 4 high schools in 3 states…

Loved Mantle as a kid even though I was born in 1980… :grin:

True Player FOR REAL! :rofl::rofl::rofl:


It was Don Mattingly for me. My favorite player growing up. Hate that his back issues shortened his career.

Sad day we lost another baseball game today we officially are bad😖
