1969: The great Mickey Mantle retired from baseball


It was no surprise that Mickey Mantle retired on this day in 1969.   He had been a part-time player for several years and no longer covering center field.    

His numbers were great:  .298 career batting average, 536 HR & 1,509 RBI.

Question:  What would have been his numbers with good knees?   We can only imagine.   My guess is that Mantle would have challenged Ruth's 714 HR!
