THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 19, 1956
* Mickey Mantle long home run
* Brigg's Stadium, Detroit, Michigan
* Best title to be had ?
The sport's section (page 20) has a banner headline: "Yankees Defeat Tigers on Mantle's Three-Run Homer in Eighth at Detroit" with subheads and box scores. Great to have from the home of Yankee baseball.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with 60 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally in very nice condition.
Note: While this home run does not appear in Mantle's top ten list of long shots at only 370 feet, it is important to note that it cleared a 110 foot building at 370 feet.
