Mickey Mantle's Favorite Experience in Yankee Stadium

In 1972, four years after playing his last game for the team, the legendary Mickey Mantle was sent a letter by then-Vice-President of the New York Yankees, Bob Fishel, and asked to contribute to the Yankee Stadium's forthcoming 50th anniversary celebrations. All Mickey had to do was fill in the enclosed survey and share details of his "outstanding experience at Yankee Stadium." Below is the letter, and Mantle's surprising response.

Note: Both the letter and response seen below have been verified as true by biographer Jane Leavy, as reported by Snopes.

Just reading the threak title I guessed it was either a b.j. or getting drunk. The Mick was an animal.

This story is BS.

Not quite bullshit - possibly not a true story (though I'm sure Mickey got head all over Yankee stadium) but it is his letter.
