The greatest Yankee of all time. He hit a ton of home runs, and would have hit more if he wasn't such a boozehound. He wanted to punch umpires in the face for not calling him safe at the plate. Died about 14 years ago from liver failure I believe.
Yankee Fan #1: Hey did Mickey Mantle just punch that guy in the face?
Fan #2: Well, you don't mess with the Mick after a night of hard liquor.
