Player Biography
“You’re going to be a great player, kid,” said Jackie Robinson to Mickey Mantle after the 1952 World Series. Mantle was a star from the start; his talent and boyish good looks earned him iconic status. Despite a series of devastating injuries, Mantle accumulated a long list of impressive accomplishments, finishing his 18-year career with 536 home runs and a .298 batting average. When healthy, Mantle was an excellent defensive outfielder – lightning-fast, with a strong and accurate arm. The switch-hitter won three Most Valuable Player awards and a Triple Crown, contributing to 12 pennants and seven World Series titles for the New York Yankees, while establishing numerous Fall Classic records.
