Publisher Description:
Roy White's Yankees career, from 1965 to 1979, is the only one to connect the Mantle-Berra-Ford dynasty with the Martin-Jackson-Steinbrenner championships. He began his career in the outfield with Mickey Mantle and ended it beside Mickey Rivers. Even the seasoned Yankees fan can open "Then Roy Said to Mickey..." anywhere and find new insights and anecdotes from Roy and his teammates, from the bush leagues to the World Series. Loved by both fans and teammates, Roy and his friends tell their stories with humor, insight, and a knack for uncovering the inside knowledge behind some of the game's best-known moments. Each story reflects not only the players' friendship with Roy, but also their deep appreciation for their opportunity to be Yankees, whether for a few games or for several years. What major-league slugger of the 1950s was nicknamed after himself? What Yankees pitcher, barely out of high school, faced ancient Satchel Paige in a championship game? What Yankee almost played forward for UCLA and John Wooden? Who was the "Baseball Zombie"? Why did Billy Martin start wearing cowboy boots? Whose bat did Bucky Dent use to hit his famous homer? What happens when a switch-hitter faces a switch-pitcher? How did a burrito cost Joe Pepitone the Texas League batting crown? For the answer to these and other questions that every Yankee fan, every baseball fan, wants to know, read "Then Roy said to Mickey...."
