Mickey Mantle hits his 500th Home Run as aired on WPIX-TV - May 14, 1967
DID YOU KNOW ? The New York Yankees signed Mickey Mantle to a minor-league contract in 1949, the day he graduated high school. He was paid $400 for the remainder of the season and a $1,100 signing bonus. A Yankee for his entire career, among Mantle's many accomplishments are all-time World Series records for home runs (18), runs scored (42), and runs batted in (40). He once hit a ball left-handed that cleared the right-field roof at Tiger Stadium in Detroit estimated to have traveled 643 feet. In 1956, Mantle won the Triple Crown, leading the majors with a .353 batting average, 52 HR and 130 RBI on the way to his first of three MVP awards.

ARNOLD PALMER - EVERYONE’S HERO Golf was a rich man's game. Strictly country club, and then came Arnold Palmer. Here was a guy just like most of us, rough around the edges. He was a big hitter with a limited short game. Sound familiar. He had that wild swing, and when he missed a shot, we missed. He was almost always coming from behind, making that now famous charge. Arnie was the guy next door. He brought golf in to our living room with the advent of television. He was our hero. When he won, we all won.
