    If that is indeed accurate, that may be the best letter ever written.

    As the man says, if that's not true, it oughta be.

    I can see the single tear from the trash commercial thirty years ago now trailing down the cheek of little Bobby Costas!

    I guess that scene ended up on the cutting room floor during the editing of 61*

    Meanwhile, Commissioner Bud Selig is contemplating taking posthumous action against Mantle using his "best interests of baseball" power.

    Guess Mickey wasn't as much of a switch hitter as we all thought.
