On March 26, 1951 —– In an exhibition game at the University of Southern California, Mickey Mantle propels a home run estimated at 654 to 660 feet. The shot clears Bovard Field and then goes the width of a practice football field before landing. Mantle has two homers, a bases-loaded triple, and drives in seven runs as the Yankees flunk the Trojans, 15 – 1.
Listen to Mickey talk New York, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, DiMaggio and Maris.
Additionally, I will highlight today's Strat O Matic simulation of the 2020 season.
