All My Octobers: My Memories of Twelve World Series When the Yankees Ruled Baseball Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To everyone who truly loves the game, Mickey Mantle epitomizes the golden age of baseball, when the mighty New York Yankees indisputably ruled, appearing in an unprecedented twelve World Series in fourteen years! In this intimate memoir, Mantle recounts the joys and trials of his rise from rural Oklahoma youngster to the pinnacle of baseball greatness.

In All My Octobers, the one and only Mick relives every one of his World Series appearances — from the 1951 battle when he played alongside an aging Joe DiMaggio to his three-home-run performance in the 1964 showdown. In addition to the on-field heroics, Mantle talks candidly about the injuries, the alcohol, the parties and celebrations, and the terrible toll they can take on a young athlete's life. But most of all, it is a remembrance of October greatness, of postseason pyrotechnics . . . and a loving appreciation of a team of titans that achieved something marvelous and unequaled to this day.

Synopsis:

The legendary Mickey Mantle recounts his memories of being part of the New York Yankees from 1951-1964. He also speaks candidly about overcoming his lifelong addiction to alcohol, and the friends, family and thousands of fans who helped him do it.

About the Author

In addition to All My Octobers, Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle was the author of two New York Times bestsellers, The Mick and My Favorite Summer.
