Anybody who is a baseball enthusiast or a fan know who the legendary Mickey Mantle is. The former New York Centerfielder is known as the greatest switch-hitter (he can hit the ball from the right or left side-get your mind out the gutter) in history, has the most home runs ever in a World Series (18), career leader in walk-off home runs (13) just to name a few. A you can also add (in a Samuel L Jackson voice) “THE “MUTHA F**KIN MAN” to that list after you check this out.
In something that solidifies not just how great of a player he was, but dammit how smoothed out and pimp-tight he is a letter was released written by Mickey Mantle depicting his most outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium. This was in response to a request from then-Vice-President of the New York Yankees, Bob Fishel, and asked to contribute to the Yankee Stadium’s forthcoming 50th anniversary celebrations. You know that expression taken from that great bible verse “Ask and you shall receive” well check out the letter sent by Fishel and then check out the response from Mantle.
Maybe you didn’t read that like you thought you did so just in case HERE IS THE TRANSCRIPT (in clear type)
New York Yankees Inc.
As you probably know, 1973 marks the 50th anniversary of Yankees Stadium and we are going to have a season-long Golden Anniversary celebration. We hope to mark the occasion on our Old Timers Day, Saturday, August 11, as well as on individual dates during the season.
We thought it would be interesting to learn from you what you consider your outstanding event at Yankee Stadium. In many cases the answer is obvious, but because we are writing a large number of your former team mates, we are asking you to answer this question for us.
1973 will be the final season at Yankee Stadium as we know it. We will be located at Shea in 1974 and ’75 while Yankee Stadium is completely rebuilt to reopen in 1976.
Thanks for your cooperation. We are looking forward to seeing you in 1973 and wish you a happy holiday season.
Very truly yours,
(Signed, ‘Bob Fishel’)

I consider the following my outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium:
— I got a blow-job under the right field Bleachers, by the Yankee Bull pen.
This event occurred on or about: (Give as much detail as you can)
— It was about the third or fourth inning. I had a pulled groin and couldn’t fuck at the time. She was a very nice girl and asked me what to do with the cum after I came in her mouth. I said don’t ask me, I’m no cock-sucker.
