"Now in My Favorite Summer 1956, the Mick chronicles that amazing season as only he can. Here is his battle with idol Ted Williams for the batting title; his challenge of the Babe's home run record; the wild adventures of the Three Musketeerss: Mantle, Martin, and Ford; and his fond memories of playing for the legendary Casey Stengel. And here too is a nostalgic trip to a time gone by, a time when players were regular guys, earning regular pay, when Willie, Mickey and the Duke all played center field in New York, a time of simple pleasures, and bigger-than-life heroes." - from the dj
