1956: What a shot by Mantle!



On this day in 1956, Mickey Mantle hit one of the most memorable home runs in his career.   It happened on the second game of a doubleheader with the Washington Senators.
He hit a pitch from Pedro Ramos that came within 18 inches of leaving Yankee Stadium.  The experts said that the could have traveled more than 600 feet. 
It was Mantle’s 20th home run of the season.   He won the Triple Crown that year:  .353 BA, 53 HR & 130 RBI.
