Take Me Out To The Ballgame
American Sports have taken a bad rap lately. Sure athletes have their problems and many of them have as big of a rap sheet as a stat sheet. Many wonder why can't they be like the athletes of yesterday such as The All-American Boy, Mickey Mantle.
Well a new story has come out that sheds a little more light on that. I came across an article in Snopes.com. Snopes still list the case as undetermined and have neither proved nor disproved the legitimacy of the story but it still made me laugh my ass off. Click here to view a pdf of the letter sent to The All American Boy and his response. (Make sure and scroll all the way down on the link.)
After reading this letter, I kick myself for not paying more attention in Little League.
