Mickey Mantle was perhaps the greatest switch-hitter to ever play the game of baseball. Mantle won the Triple Crown in 1956. He was an American League (AL) Most Valuable Player 3 times, and All-Star 16 times. He played in 19 of the 20 All-Star games he was named to, and appeared in 12 World Series. He still holds the records for most World Series home runs (18), RBIs (40), runs (42), walks (43), extra-base hits (26), and total bases (123). Whitey Ford refered to him as “a superstar who never acted like one. He was a humble man who was kind and friendly to all his teammates, even the rawest rookie. He was idolized by all the other players.” Mickey Mantle’s #7 was permanently retired by the New York Yankees in 1969.
