    Speaking about Mickey Mantle, do you remember the song "I Love Mickey" by Theresa Brewer?

    These are among the best players. They are far from among the best names.

    "Mickey Charles," really?

    Mickey Charles Mantle is a wonderful name.

    Oklahoma was Cardinals country way back when, and Mutt Mantle named his sone after Mickey Cochrane. He didnít know that Cochrane's first name was Gordon.

    Heck, Gordy Mantle wouldn't have been half bad. Good thing he didn't call him Mutt Jr., though.

    How about, "Joltin Joe Dimaggio" with "The Yankee Clipper" himself adding his voice to the beginning of the 1941 song?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q6odQuCxFU

    He also apparently didn't know that Cochrane never played for the Cardinals.

    Nevertheless, Oklahoma was Cardinals country and Mutt Mantle named his son after Mickey Cochrane.

    I learned that from reading The Quality of Courage, "written by Mickey Mantle," in 1966 or so. That story stuck in my head, but apparently in a completely separate section from the one that knows where Mickey Cochrane played. Part of Connie Mack's last great powerhouse - and damn, that guy could build a team - then sold off, like every other player on those great teams.
