Mickey Mantle, the hayseed kid from Spavinaw, Oklahoma, was in his sixth year with the Yankees. He was already America's homerun king. He was about to become a national hero. 1956 would be a record-breaking season: the golden summer fans would remember forever. Now Mickey Mantle brings it all back just the way it happened--spectacular playing on field, crazy hijinks with Whitey Ford and Billy Martin off. There never was a time like it before in baseball. There never will be again. It was magic.

"From the Paperback edition."

America's favorite baseball hero recalls his greatest season. Only 25 years old in 1956, the future Hall of Famer put it all together as no one before or since ever has. Here are his battle with idol Ted Williams for the batting title; the victorious race for the Triple Crown; the amazing catch that saved Don Larsen's perfect game; and fond memories of playing for the legendary Casey Stengel in a time gone by.
