Looks to me as if he was jealous of the Mick. Anyways, this looks like an interesting book.

Jealous of the Mick??? He wasn't jealous of him. He was incensed by the way he conducted himself off-the-field. Mantle was a boozing, womanizing a$$hole, who wouldn't have survived a minute with today's scrutinizing media.

A long ago co-worked once told me a story about when he was a kid. He said that he was collecting ballplayer autographs in some Washington hotel. (I assume that the Yankees were playing the Senators.) He said that when he approached Mantle with a ball to sign, Mantle literally slapped the ball out of his hand as he rushed past.

DiMaggio had more class in his pinky toe than Mantle ever had in his whole body. (IMHO.)
