Plague Theater: A Mickey Mantle at-bat from 1961

Is it me, or is Mickey really not wearing a batting helmet?

No helmet, no gloves, no underwear. And Mick, swing a little harder!

Proof that the Mick wasn't lying when someone asked him if he ever went up trying to hit a home run, and he said "Every time."

Mantle was wearing a protective liner under his cap.

That was the Series in which Mantle got a key single to win a game later on, even though his leg was literally bleeding through his uniform.
