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.

Baker & Taylor
The legendary ballplayer chronicles the 1956 season when he competed with Ted Williams for the batting title, saved Don Larsen's perfect game, and had wild times with teammates Whitey Ford and Billy Martin
