Need some help here: We voted on the all-time greatest Yankee home run. What would be the all-time greatest Yankee double?

I'm thinking of two easy ones:

Jorge Posada's double off of Pedro, which helped tie the game that led to Aaron Boone's home run...

Charlie Keller's double off Hugh Casey, after Mickey Owens let strike three slide from his mitt, allowing Tommy Heinrich to get to first base, in game four of the 1941 World Series.

There have to be many more...

The all-time greatest Yankee double...

Mickey Mantle's double that landed on the pitcher's mound, and by the time it landed, Mickey was on second base. It had been an extremely high pop up.

Mantle and Maris

I agree that it's Mickey Mantle but his all time greatest double was the double Jack Daniels he threw down just before banging the Doublemint Twins in the bathroom at Toots Shor's 1967. It put him on the DL but from all accounts was worth it.

Thurman Munson - Oct 2, 1978 @ Fenway: Top 7th - Bucky had just put the Yanks up 3-2 (most dramatic HR in Yank history off Mike Torrez) / M. Rivers walks / Bob Stanley replaces Torrez / Rivers steals 2B / T. Munson doubles to score Mick The Quick to push the lead to 4-2.

I MAY HAVE TO GO WITH JORGE'S 2B OFF PEDRO......
