Mickey Mantle 1973 - His Last Home Run in Yankee Stadium, OTD, 8/11/1973

YanksAtShea finds another archival goodie (some video-audio problems). Here's Mickey Mantle, the magnificent Yankee, hitting his last (unofficial) home run in the original Yankee Stadium before 46,000 + on Old Timer's Day 1973.

Mick's buddy Whitey Ford serves up some nice ones for this homer finale (this is also the last OTD in the original Yankee Stadium). Catch his first foul home run with Mel Allen encouraging him right afterwards to "Straighten it out, Mick!!"

 This is as sentimental a favorite if ever there was one. Long live Mickey, Whitey, Mel Allen, and the memories of the original Yankee Stadium.
