Mickey Mantle hit 536 career home runs during his career with the New York Yankees, and 18 more in his 12 trips to the World Series.
Oldtime Game History
Former New York Yankees star Mike Pagliarulo, a Medford, Mass., native, has been a frequent visitor to the Oldtime Baseball Game over the years. He has worn this uniform in 1999, 2010 and 2019. And he’s not the only player with Yankees ties to wear it. Remember Jeff Maier? He became an overnight celebrity during the 1996 American League Championship Series when the then 12-year-old turned a fly ball by the Yankees’ Derek Jeter into a home run by reaching out of the bleachers and deflecting the ball. Ten years later, after becoming the all-time hits leader at Wesleyan University, he wore this uniform in the 2006 Oldtime Baseball Game. He came back to wear it again in 2008. Oh, and Phil Rizzuto wore this uniform in 2011. No, not that Phil Rizzuto. This Phil Rizzuto is a native of Cambridge who in 2011 was a student at Lesley University and part-time sportswriter with the Cambridge Chronicle. A former member of the Cambridge Babe Ruth League, Rizzuto played in the 2011 Game and wrote about his experiences in the Chronicle.
