Overview

"I’ve been meaning to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed your book." –Charlie Daniels, Country Music Legend

Mickey Mantle: Inside and Outside the Lines is different from any other Mickey Mantle book. It was written for baseball lovers and Mantle fans who will live vicariously through its author Tom Molito.

The year 2016 is the 60th Anniversary of Mantle's Triple Crown season, which many baseball experts consider one of the best seasons ever for a ballplayer. Paradoxically, those who experienced that season are decreasing in numbers. But, Mickey Mantle is more popular than ever. The value of his memorabilia is second to none. He remains respected and admired for the redemptive quality of his life.

The book recalls never told before stories: from Park Avenue to Las Vegas to Cooperstown; from television shoots to concerts and Mickey's restaurant on Central Park West.

Molito collaborated with the highly respected baseball historian Harold "Doc" Friend. The late Mr. Friend wrote for Bleacher Report (CBS) and uncovered previously unknown facts about Mantle's career - such as Mickey hitting the facade in Yankee Stadium 3 times, not the reported twice. An entire chapter updates Mantle's career with present-day statistical measures and comes to the indisputable conclusion that "Mickey Mantle was even better then we thought!"

The book utilizes archival newspaper articles, websites, and more than 35 books on Mantle to weave the most complete, unique look at an American Icon.
