The Mick: Graceful Even in Defeat

Mickey Mantle - June 25, 1965 - John Dominis/Getty Images

Even though this is a dejected Mickey Mantle after a 1965 at-bat, it’s my favorite photo of him. He’s my favorite all-time baseball player. This picture shows how real he was as a person, and yet, how much larger-than-life he was as a player. The Mick: Graceful even in defeat.
