Mickey Mantle was a renowned American professional baseball player, who was also known as “The Mick” and “The Commerce Comet.” He played for the ‘New York Yankees’ in ‘Major League Baseball’ (MLB) as their first baseman and center fielder. He was one of the greatest switch-hitters and sluggers in the history of the tournament. His inclusion in the ‘Baseball Hall of Fame’ in 1974 and in the ‘MLB All-Century’ team in 1999 further proved his worth in the American professional baseball scene. Born and raised in Oklahoma, he was the son of a miner. After playing baseball throughout his school days, he was picked up by the ‘New York Yankees’ in 1951. The next season saw Mickey achieving greater stardom. 1956 was the golden year of Mickey’s career, as it brought him a ‘Triple Crown’ win and several other honors. He was named an ‘All-Star’ 16 times in his career. He finally bid farewell to the game in 1969, after a significantly successful run.
