We’re all well aware of Mickey Mantle’s legend on the field. But some of us were not aware of his legend off the field. Well, we’re slowly finding out that Mantle’s legend was just as big off the field as it was on it. First, we learned of a nude photo of Mantle that somehow, someway, find its way on a prison website. And now, we have the tale of Mantle getting a blow-job during a game in Yankee Stadium.
Mantle shares his tale in response to the Yankees asking him to give an outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium for the 50th anniversary celebration.
Here’s the original letter in its entirety:
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’)
December 14, 1972/m
And here’s Mantle’s glorious response:
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.
