But riotious living,(he didn't think he'd live to see 40, like his father and uncles who died young) and injuries, caused this hall of famer not to reach his full potential.Casey Stengel his legendary manager, always asked what if?The son of a miner, who taught him to switch hit, at an early age. Signed by the New York Yankees as a teenager. Playing a couple of years in the minors, No. 7 arrived in New York, and was immediately compared to Joe Dimaggio and the Bambino , the Mick was 19!Becoming drinking buddies with Whitey Ford and Billy Martin,constantly in the newspapers, but not always in a favorable way. He captured the big apple's affection ,as few ever had. Men named their son's Mickey(Mantle's father named the Mick after Mickey Cochrane, the Detroit catcher).
